JUNE MEETING: Dovercourt at Toowong has a New Farm connection

Saturday, 25 June 2022 —— Enjoy the talk here.

HISTORIC Dovercourt, on the prime hilltop location at 124 Sherwood Rd, Toowong, was built at the same time (1865) and by the same architect as Teneriffe House.

Author of a book about the house, Harold Peacock, will speak at the June meeting of the New Farm and Districts Historical Society.

 “The house has witnessed a political conspiracy, a financial swindle, a disappearance, a sex scandal, and a suspicious death,” said Harold. Dovercourt has another local connection, being linked to New Farm’s Merthyr, once the home of Sir Samuel Griffith. 

Come and enjoy Harold’s address at the meeting to be held at the Uniting Church Centre, 52 Merthyr Rd, New Farm  on Saturday, 25 June at 2.30pm. Afternoon tea is always a highlight. $10 (members $5). All are welcome.
