Information

The Dalhousie homestead buildings were constructed from springs limestone. The limestone blocks were well-dressed and brought to accurate courses in the process of construction. The buildings were built sometime between 1872 and 1885. This small settlement consisted of the homestead, a shed, workmen's quarters, blacksmith's shop and the stockyards. The homestead is thought to be the earliest structure. The fence was erected to protect the building from being undermined by rabbits.
