The St. John's Group of Buildings

Stroud, NSW, Australia

These foundation Stones of corporate agriculture in Australia form the heart of the village of Stroud, founded by the Australian Agricultural Company in the Colony of NSW in 1826.

‘The St John’s group of buildings… belongs to a settlement of antiquity whose overall preservation is eminently desirable… Their historical importance is clear and their rarity value very high.’

Dr Kenneth J. Cable AM (1929- 2003)
Professor History , Uni. of Syd
