The Roma Historical Precincts Inc. (RHPI) was formed to collect, preserve, and research, interpret and exhibit material evidence of cultural significance in Roma and the surrounding district.
We aim to be a formally recognised cultural precinct and share visionary objectives, to present excellence in cultural heritage, while delivering educational, community and cultural benefit. To achieve this, we manage and care for significant cultural heritage collections. The strategic plan recognises the opportunity to create a true cultural hub; uniting the community behind a clear direction, allocating scarce resources to agreed priorities and consolidating key initiatives and goals.
The association’s role is to collect, preserve, and research, interpret and exhibit material evidence of cultural significance in Roma and the surrounding district.
