Work has started on the ambitious project to restore federation style verandahs in the town's CBD.
Scaffolding has gone up around the old Tenterfield Star building in Rouse Street, which is the first verandah to be restored as part of Tenterfield's national monument project.
The project involves restoring building facades to what they looked like in the early 1900s, and telling the stories of Tenterfield's rich connection to Australian history at that time.
All going well, chair of the Tenterfield National Monument committee, Greg Sauer, said they should see the finished result around the first week in May.
And now they are looking ahead to other buildings in the project.
"BJS Constructions should soon commence work on the Premier Store and the National Building," Mr Sauer said.
"We will hopefully sign a contract with a painter in the coming weeks to do the remainder of the Post Office."
The Star building was constructed when the newspaper was owned by JF Thomas, who defended Australian soldiers during the Boer War.
Thomas was the defence lawyer in the 1902 Courts Martial of Lieutenants Harry Morant, Peter Handcock, and George Witton who were tried and sentenced for executing 12 Boer prisoners. Morant and Handcock were executed and Witton's death sentence was commuted to life imprisonment.
The building was one of eight selected to have their federation-style verandahs restored during stage one of the national monument project.
The eight sites identified as the first to undergo a facelift also include the Federation Bakery on High Street, the post office, the National Buildings (housing Alford & Duff etc.), the Premier Boot Depot (Mitchell's Shoes), the Noted Cheap Store (Tenterfield Laundrette), Sing Sing & Co (now Tenterfield Homemakers), and the Lyric PictureTheatre.
