Description

The stories of number 16 Cottrell Street and its inhabitants are rich accounts of life in Wheatbelt WA during the first half of the 20th century offering a unique and compelling vision of family and business life at that time. The building itself is a very authentic weatherboard and iron-roofed cottage, constructed in 1915 by Eugene O’Shaughnessy the local Saddler and Harness Maker. Complete with many of its original features the cottage was purchased for the Museum Committee by the Dowerin & Goomalling Apex Club and is now vested within the Shire of Dowerin.
