Ben Hall monument in Forbes / NSW
Here we have one again: a monument for a bushranger,and his name is Ben Hall (1837–1865)
You will find his monument next to the tourist-information inside the former trainstation of Forbes and this is the inscription written on it:
though he was long suspected of beeing an accomplice of Frank Gardiner.
For more than 2 years Hall bailed up mail coaches, travellers, Inn-keepers,
squatters and storekeepers in the Lachlan district.
Aged 27 he was shot by a police party of eight,
led by sub-inspector James Henry Davidson
on 5 May 1865 about 20km northwest of Forbes.
This statue was commissioned by Ben Hall 3rd
(great grandson of Ben Hall)
and sculptured by Pamela Norman.
Have a Ben Hall - experience
is the inscription of the tourist-information there - see my 3rd picture.
I dont know if you will be robbed in their shop or what else that might mean...
