TEN new plaques have been added to the Pillars of Bathurst monument.
These plaques recognise 11 adults, one child and two horses, all having either made an impact on the city’s history or represented part of the community.
Featured on the pillars are Hal Eyre, Selina Anderson, Lewis Lloyd, William Boyd, John Charles White and Charles White, Beatrice Grimshaw, William Clunies Ross and Sir Ian Clunies Ross, Elizabeth Sophia Pleffer, Mary Black, and George Lee.
Mr Lee, a horse trainer from Bathurst, trained Melbourne Cup victors The Barb and Merriwee, and the names of those horses have been included on his plaque.
The new plaques have helped to fill half of the 80 available spaces on the pillars.
Historian Dr Rob McLachlan said each person had helped to shape Bathurst.
“These are people who have been recognised for having added something special to the story of the Bathurst Region over the past 200 years,” he said.
