Dr Troy Duncan spoke about the history of this mental health institution that first opened in 1871, many thanks to those who attended, it was quite an interesting and fun night.

Newcastle and the Hunter is a significant area of NSW and the second oldest city in Australia. Our cultural heritage is increasingly under threat and unfortunately the Hunter does not always gain the support needed to protect heritage places. For this reason this blogspot has been established not only to raise community awareness of heritage conservation issues, but to also publicise and promote events organised by local National Trust members and the three historic homes managed by the Trust. These are:- Tomago House, Grosmann House & Miss Porters House Join the National Trust of Australia (NSW) online at www.nsw.nationaltrust.org.au
