The display board was dedicated to the memory of Karl Pieper (1925-2004) and recognises Tenterfield`s partnership towns and Tenterfield`s German settlers.

In Tenterfield, Karl Pieper and his wife, Clare, arrived from Germany in the 1950s. They came as assisted migrants. Karl was a watchmaker. He worked for local jeweller and watchmaker Geoff Windridge, eventually purchasing the business and renaming it ‘Pieper’s Watchmakers and Jewellers.'
