He Henry Lawson Centre is a museum dedicated to Lawson's life and literary works, and to the family, friends, literary characters and places that filled his years with a display of photos, oil paintings and prints, first edition books, manuscripts and much more. The building housing the museum was once a Salvation Army Hall and the original altar is still in place. The Centre has been commended by the Museums and Galleries Foundation for the high quality of its displays, and has won an award of distinction in the 2000 New South Wales Awards for Excellence in Tourism.
Henry Lawson's parents brought him from Grenfell to Eurunderee, a small village between Mudgee and Gulgong, when he was an infant, and he spent his childhood and early teens in the Eurunderee/Gulgong/Mudgee district. The scenes and experiences of these years influenced Lawson enormously. They appear, with vivid clarity, in many of his works.
