Voices of Eskbank – 175th Anniversary exhibition
25th November – 28th January
“…this building which represents so much in the history of Lithgow.” Lithgow Historical Committee to Australian Iron & Steel, 28 September 1944
Voices of Eskbank captures key moments and individuals associated with the history of Eskbank House including the influential industrialists Thomas Brown, James Rutherford, William Sandford and the Hoskins Brothers.
Eskbank House was built for Thomas and Mary Brown c.1841 – 1842 and has been at the heart of Lithgow’s industrial development ever since. Eric Bracey purchased it from Australian Iron and Steel in 1948, and with the Lithgow District Historical Society, opened it as museum on 21st November 1966.
This exhibition and accompanying publication mark the anniversary of that gift and 175 years since the house was built.
This exhibition was made possible with the support of a Heritage Near Me Grant from the New South Wales Government.
