‘Neighbours’ – More Tales from The Bathurst Government Settlement – – Cancelled due to Covid-19

Sat April 18

If they had had television then, there would have been a soap chronicling the lives of the notso-neighbourly residents of the Bathurst Gaol and Barracks in the 1830s-40s. Located on the site of The Greens on William, the building housed, all under one roof, prisoners of various descriptions as well as men, women and children of the Military Garrison and Mounted Police Detachment. Drawing on his research, Dr Robin McLachlan will share stories about life in this often crowded and smelly multiple occupancy dwelling. This Bathurst District Historical Society tour will take about one hour.
