About

History lovers will be able to catch a glimpse of everyday life in a bygone era when the beautiful Glenalvon House in the historic Macarthur region opens its doors to the public for free entry on the first Monday; and the second and fourth Saturday of the month (February to November). Glenalvon House was built in 1841 and is described by the National Trust as 'an exceptional two-storied sandstone home of colonial Georgian design'. The furnished two storeys colonial house provides a glimpse into Campbelltown's days early in the 19th century. Twelve rooms are open to the public, including the drawing-room, the library, the nursery, and the children's bedroom. An agricultural exhibition featuring the actual tools from colonial times is also located on the site. Glenalvon also features a period garden, a sandstone coach house and heritage stables. The property is home to the Campbelltown and Airds Historical Society.
