Eskbank House MuseumLast updated Friday, 26 Nov 2010.
This building was constructed in 1842 for Thomas Brown, Lithgow's first industrialist and later used as a Manager's residence for nearby steelworks - the first in Australia. It was purchased in 1848 by Eric Bracey, a prominent local businessman, and deeded to community ownership. The building was managed by Lithgow Historical Society until 2003 when Council took ownership and management.
