You may not have noticed yet, but things are changing up the hill.
Staff at Pioneer Park Museum are hoping to usher in a new era at the site, telling Griffith's history in more dynamic and interesting ways than ever before.
And it looks like they're off to the perfect start.
The museum has won a 2020 IMAGinE award for its 'Vintage Voices - Tune in to Griffith's history' program.
The project explores the history of radio and communications in Griffith, and sealed a win in the 'Imagination' category for it's innovative approach to storytelling.
It includes the refurbishment of the Post Office exhibit at the museum, which will be used to showcase ham radio demonstrations by the local amateur radio club, and 10 unique radio plays based on stories from across the Riverina, created in collaboration with a local theatre group.
The award comes with a $3,000 grant, which will be used to help fund the new exhibit.
Museum Curator Bonnie Owen watched the award ceremony on a live stream with fellow staff and couldn't believe it when their name was read out.
"I was so excited! I jumped out of my chair because I just didn't expect it."
"I knew our projects were really well done and they definitely deserved it, but I also knew we were in very good company," she said.
According to Ms Owen, the award recognises the "rallying of a community" looking to tell it's own history, as well as the museum changing the way it tells stories.

"We're still doing the traditional 'come in, look around, and have that hands-on experience', but we're currently in a hands-off era, and that's given us an opportunity to do new things," she said.
Denis Couch is a volunteer at the museum and a member of the Wagga Amateur Radio Club - Griffith Branch, who are collaborating with the museum and the Griffith Regional Association of the Performing Arts (GRAPA), to help deliver the Vintage Voices program.
He said the success of the project is a springboard for the museum as it develops a new identity going forward.
"We're changing the way history is collated and curated here in Griffith."
Mr Couch said the creation of a new interactive exhibit within the replica post office is an example of the museum's recent revitalisation.
"We're taking something which has been here for 50 years and hasn't been touched in years, and we're turning it into something really good and which people will find interesting," he said.
And according to Mr Couch, this is just the beginning, with a range of exciting ideas at the museum already lined up for next year.
Pioneer Park Museum also received a 'Highly Commended' award in the Innovation & Resilience category for its From The Collection video project.
