Glimpse Campbelltown’s Days as a Colonial Town

October 25, 2013 Destination Global No Comments Email Email

To celebrate Macarthur’s biggest annual event – the Festival of Fisher’s Ghost from November 1-10 – one of NSW’s finest Georgian mansion, the 1840-built Glenalvon, will offer four, free open days in November.

Glenalvon House 2Built from sandstone, the two-storey colonial house provides a glimpse into Campbelltown’s days early in the 19th century as a small farming community accessed only by horse and cart from the fledging colony of Sydney.

Glenalvon features a period garden, a sandstone coach house and stables. Boasting smooth, golden stonework, the property is home to the Campbelltown and Airds Historical Society and visitors can inspect items from the Macarthur region’s colonial and farming history.

To mark the Festival of Fisher’s Ghost, which surrounds the murder of an emancipated convict in 1826, Glenalvon will hold four free open days on Saturday November 2, Monday November 4, Saturday November 9 and Monday November 18, 2013.
