Elizabeth Farm - Museums Australia (NSW) Tour and Talk

Tour and talk conducted by Bronwyn Alcorn, Manager of Elizabeth Farm, Wednesday 3rd March, 2010, 4pm.
The farm was built in 1793 for John Macarthur, known as the father of the wool industry, and his wife Elizabeth. Tales of passion and anguish, early colonial political skulduggery and the genesis of Australia's wool trade are cemented into these walls.
Bronwyn will talk about the remaining mysteries of the architecture and past of the farm.
