Nice self-guided tour and lots of information about the building and legal history in Beechworth. The library itself was incredibly interesting - worth browsing the spines in there!

Steeped in "bushranger" history this entire precinct is worth a visit. Send someone a telegram too: they'll get a kick out of that!
