Elderslie House

If adventurer, miner and entrepreneur John Newell was alive today, chances are his Irish eyes would be smiling. His beloved home, which once stood on the hill near the present day Mount St Bernard College overlooking the tin-mining town he founded in the1880s, once again echoes the sounds of footsteps and voices. The 130-year old Elderslie House has been painstakingly restored to her former glory and is now the proud “jewel in the crown” of the Village.
