Oak House barns restoration project
Oak House Museum is a Grade II listed house dating back to the 17th century in picturesque grounds close to West Bromwich town centre. A £1.7 million restoration programme began in February 2013 to transform the historic barns and provide new facilities for visitors, schools and the local community.
The restoration work to the barn and dairy completed in summer 2014, and opened to the public in September 2014. The new facilities which include a classroom and a community meeting room are available all year round.
The restored Oak House Museum has:
- improved a popular tourist attraction close to West Bromwich town centre
- become more attractive to visitors
- created new community and school facilities
- restored Grade II listed buildings to their former glory.
