HOME OF THE LADY DENMAN - Local history isn't always about the big story - the everyday story of life in the early development of the region can be a fascinating, entertaining and educational journey.

28 February 2014

Exciting exhibitions later in the year.

194-Harriet-Parker---rs The Lady Denman will be hosting around 6 separate and unique exhibitions in 2014,
The Antique Display Fair in October, It will have a huge collection of antiques on display from some of Australia’s best traders and you will be able to bring your own antiques to the exhibition and have them appraised.
Followed by the Floral Art exhibition in December, where you will see some amazing floral art on display.
These type of exhibitions take time to organise and the exhibition team are getting a fantastic response from exhibitors already, so both shows are shaping up to be highlights of the exhibition season at the Museum.

More information as we get closer.

This haunting image is of Harriet Parker daughter of the assistant Cape St George Light House Keeper.
In July 1887,  she was accidentally shot dead in by Kate Gibson, the Chief Keeper's daughter. The jury of the ensuing Coronial inquiry stated that Harriet had died "from a gunshot wound accidentally received, and that Kate Gibson was not to blame as they were skylarking ..." Harriet Parker's grave can be found in the nearby Greenpatch Camping Area.
