First meeting for 2022: Newstead House

Saturday, 26 March 2022 —— Enjoy the talk here.

BRISBANE HISTORIAN Helen Gregory is to be the guest at our first meeting for 2022. She will speak about ‘The People of Newstead House’. It’s a timely topic since Brisbane’s beautiful 176-year-old sandstone and timber home is currently enjoying a $5M Queensland government renovation.

“As well as the Leslies and all their connections, there is J.C. Wickham, James Clark the pearling king, and Harris the businessman whose daughter was the mother of a future Governor-General,” says Helen.

It promises to be a most interesting meeting so arrive early on Saturday, 26 March, 2.30-4.30pm, at the Uniting Church Centre at 52 Merthyr Rd. Afternoon tea will be provided. Bring along your friends. All are welcome.

Enjoy the talk here.
