Sims Foundry


Duncan Sim came to Australia in 1842 and first worked as a woodcutter, then as a wheelwright. The business he established steadily progressed and for many years it was the largest of its type north of Newcastle. 60 men once worked here casting iron ovens, agricultural machinery, railway rolling stock, and other articles. D Sim and Sons Iron and Brass Foundry occupied this site from the 1850s to 1926.
