In­ver­ness re­union

The cen­te­nary of Too­goolawah Home­stead cel­e­brated

Gatton Star - - NEWS -

KEY de­scen­dants of Archibald Munro from south-east Queens­land as well as a num­ber of long-term local fam­i­lies came to­gether re­cently to cel­e­brate the cen­te­nary of the con­struc­tion of In­ver­ness Home­stead in Too­goolawah.

The beau­ti­ful home was con­structed in 1917 for the Munro fam­ily who lived there for many years.

Archibald Munro was man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of the Con­densery for Nes­tle.

Other mem­bers of his fam­ily also worked for Nes­tle in Mel­bourne in later years.

The prop­erty is now owned by the Steven­son fam­ily who have spent con­sid­er­able time, ef­fort and money to re­store and main­tain the home.

The Steven­sons held a spe­cial af­ter­noon tea to mark the event.

Images of this sig­nif­i­cant prop­erty and oth­ers will be a part of a new ex­hi­bi­tion due to open at the Too­goolawah His­tory Mu­seum on May 13, 2017.
