The John Shaw Neilson Society
A report from the Society records that the John Shaw Neilson Cottage at Nhill has been restored and was reopened on 14 May 2006. This was Neilson's birth place and was originally located in Penola. It was moved to Nhill and opened in 1972. Recently it had fallen into decay and the Council wished to demolish it. Local outcry saved the house and volunteers and the local Rotary Club carried out the restoration.
