Beautiful house and outbuildings. Original building dates from 1842. Strong associations with the Lithgow iron industry. Much is owed to Eric Bracey who had the forsight to preserve a slice of Australian history in 1948.

A little piece of 1960s interpretation of our colonial past. Built in simple Georgian style using local sandstone it has a typical large surrounding porch under a corrugated iron roof. Established as a house museum in the 60s it is a dated but fascinating interpretation...More
