Historic Glenalvon House situated in the heart of Campbelltown is the perfect spot to get your history fix. Built in 1840 by Michael Byrne, Glenalvon is one of the finest remaining examples of a colonial Georgian townhouse in New South Wales. The property includes the original 1831 cottage which later became the servants quarters, a coach house and stables; and the Alex Goodsell Exhibition centre which features agricultural pioneer James Ruse’s gravestone.
Glenalvon is home to the Campbelltown and Airds Historic Society which aims to collect and preserve items and information relevant to the history of the local district. Dedicated volunteers conduct tours at their regular open days and for tour groups by request.
The home is open the first Monday, second Saturday and fourth Saturday each month between February and December from 10am to 1pm.
Glenalvon can also cater for wedding ceremonies and as a photography location for your special day. For more information contact the Campbelltown and Airds Historic Society.
