Pinhey's Point Historic Site

This site stands as a testament to upper- and middle-class 19th-century rural life. Built in four stages from 1820 to 1849, the Georgian-style house maintains many of its original features, including the imposing entrance and staircase, servants’ quarters and 1860s wallpaper. Explore the history of rural water, from dowsing to boring wells, in the new temporary exhibit: Water.
