Miss Traill's House

Miss Traill's House

Built by Reverend Thomas Sharpe in 1845, Miss Traill resided in this Colonial Georgian bungalow from 1931 until her death in 1976.  She was the great granddaughter of two prominent landholders, William Lee and Thomas Kite who were given large grants of land by Governor Lachlan Macquarie.  She bequeathed the House and contents to the National Trust in 1976.   

Miss Traill was influenced by her Grandfather, George Lee, who bred horses legendary in Australian equine history.  Single, strong-willed but careful, Miss Traill inherited, amassed and cared for a collection which is a valuable insight into the influence and aspirations of the family.  The collection is an intrinsic part of her home, where it is presented today; a family treasure unique to the nation.  Miss Traill left the house, furniture and various other contents to the National Trust of Australia (NSW) on her death in 1976.
