Come to visit the National Trust’s Maitland properties – Grossmann & Brough Houses.
Grossmann House was built in 1870-71 by the merchant Isaac Beckett. It adjoins Brough House, built as a mirror image by Beckett’s business partner, Samuel Owen.
Between 1892 and 1963, the building housed Maitland Girls’ High School which was one of the first four public high schools established in New South Wales.
The National Trust has restored the house to reflect the status and era of its Victorian owners. Gas lighting has been re-installed, and wallpapers recreated from surviving fragments. Characteristic furnishings, sourced as far as possible from the region, complete the experience.
Devonshire Teas will available on the day.
