If these walls could talk: 150 years of Laurel Lodge
This grand old beauty has witnessed so many events over the last 150 years. It is a place where children were born, and people have passed. A headmistress, harbour master, auctioneer, and Dandenong's Shire Engineer have all resided under its roof. Students from well-to-do families boarded and undertook their studies here before going on to lead celebrated careers.
Peek into the private and public lives of the former owners and occupiers of Laurel Lodge and discover fascinating stories of birth, death, migration and tragedy.
The exhibition is on display from 1 August 2019 until 31 January 2020.
There will be a series of free public programs held at Heritage Hill throughout the duration of the exhibition.
