Youngtown's Franklin House celebrated 60 years of being open to the public on October 28.
Committee chairperson Julie Dineen said the celebration, held at the Town Hall on the day, was to recognise 60 years of volunteers who had helped the running of the house.
"We are there to provide a heritage experience to visitors who come to the house. We also have lots of functions at Franklin House to raise funds," she said.

Franklin House was built in 1838 and was a private residence for a while before becoming a boarding school for boys for 22 years.
The house was then turned back into a private residence before it fell into bad shape and was to be demolished.
Ms Dineen said the National Trust saved the house and the property became the first under the trust in Tasmania.
