Event description

Description

A special opportunity for Glebe Society members to be a guest in a beautiful late 1890s Glebe residence in the Toxteth Estate, where the owners will generously share the stories of their home and surrounds, while we also enjoy socialising with other Glebe residents. Lesley and Susan have kindly offered to be our hosts for the first ‘Our House’ visit in 2018.

Join us at 19 Avenue Rd Glebe, located opposite Toxteth House (now St Scholastica’s College). In 1895, Avenue Road was created by a sub- division of the Allen Estate. No 19 was built in 1898 in a transitional mix of Federation and Italianate style. The house today is substantially in its original built shape, with a 1980’s addition of a large north facing rear verandah.

The most famous occupant of the house was Dan Minogue, a City of Sydney Councillor from 1938 - 1950 and ALP member for Western Sydney from 1949 - 1969. During these years the house was the meeting place for the right wing - and Catholic - ALP in the inner west of Sydney.

Your ticket includes drinks and light refreshments. Bookings and prepayment are essential as numbers are limited.
