Plashett Homestead Open House

Anglo American Metallurgical Coal is providing a unique opportunity for the community to inspect Plashett Homestead at Jerry’s Plains on Sunday 14 April 2013 between 10am and 3pm.
The Plashett property was first settled by James Robertson in 1827. His son Sir John Robertson became 5 times Prime Minister pre-Federation and was famous for the ‘Robertson Land Act.’ In 1865 the property was acquired by the Pearse family who constructed the homestead which today is listed on the Muswellbrook Shire Council LEP.

The history of the property has recently been recorded in the book ‘People, Property, Power, Plashett Jerry’s Plains’ by well known Hunter Regional historian, Cynthia Hunter and will be available for purchase.
