Talk: New Insights on Hotham Hill by Guy Murphy.
Apr 1, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Talk postponed to 2022.
‘At Home on Hotham Hill’ is a history of a house ‘Milton Hall’ intertwined with the story of the man who built it, Robert Langford. This talk will review new information that has come to light since the book appeared in 2004. A key development has been the emergence of Trove Online, which has made accessible in searchable form historical newspapers and other documents, from which new biographical insights and details about the house have emerged. Some general reflections on writing histories of places will also be offered, drawing on the author’s 20 years experience as a heritage consultant.
This talk is planned to be held face to face at a nearby location yet to be advised, however if COVID19 restrictions apply, it may need to be held via the online method using ‘Zoom’.
