(10/1/2018) Get involved in unearthing Freo’s first church

An archaeological dig will take place in Kings Square from Monday 15 to Sunday 21 January and you can be a part of this amazing opportunity!

The dig aims to shed new light into what life was like in Freo during the late 1800s and will look for evidence of the 1840s built predecessor to the current St John’s Church along with other historical artefacts.

The plan is to showcase the findings as part of the Kings Square Renewal project by providing visitors to the square a glimpse into the past.
