Artefacts from William Edmund Carew Moss, the inaugural mayor of the municipality of Narrogin, will now be on display to the public.

Two pieces of silverware, a liqueur stand and engraved silver plate, which were presented to William Edmund Carew Moss after his retirement in 1909, were given to the Shire of Narrogin by grandsons Nigel and Gerald Carew Moss.

A spokeswoman for the Shire of Narrogin said the artefacts would go on display in the council chambers and the Town Hall Mayor’s Parlour.

“The Shire is ever so grateful for this thoughtful gesture and making these available for the community of Narrogin to enjoy,” she said.

“These artefacts will join the growing collection of heritage items of significance of the former Town and Shire of Narrogin held proudly on the display in the council chambers and Town Hall Mayor’s Parlour.”
