SINGAPORE - Queenstown, the country's first satellite estate, will get a network of six neighbourhood heritage corners, and galleries across several void decks, walkways and schools by 2020.

These galleries will feature themed showcases including photos, artefacts and stories collected from residents.

Block 145 Mei Ling Street for instance, will be the site of a kampung themed-exhibition, which pays tribute to its early days when it was home to Boh Beh Kang village.

The village had around 300 Chinese families who lived in two and three-storey attap huts at the foot of Hong Lim hill.
