Glengallan Homestead

The story of Glengallan is a sad one, and one I think, that happens far too often in the country and city. 

As a brief history the home began construction in 1867, and the grand plans of the home begun execution, however the family who owned the property quickly lost all their money, due to the building, as well as other factors such as drought in the area, and the property was sold on. 

In the late 1940's the property came into the ownership of the Anglican church and it was left to ruin for 60 years.

Conservation work has been carried out over the last 20 years, funded by Queensland Government. From the outside the building looks as it is has been restored all its former glory. 

However on the inside, the walls and ceilings still tell of the time it was left in abandonment.
