Step back in time to a simpler age
Come along to the Buckingham House Open Day on Tuesday 23rd April, 2013, between 10am and 1pm. Buckingham House is a beautiful, heritage listed property built around 1880 and is located on Neville Drive in Wanneroo.
At Buckingham House you can experience what life was like before electricity, when everything had to be done by hand. A time when life was simpler, quieter and moved at a slower pace, but also involved a lot of hard work. This historic rural house and farm property is popular with locals and tourists alike.
A lovingly restored, four bedroom cottage, Buckingham House was originally home to John and Emily Amelia Buckingham and their seven children. It was later owned or rented by several families and some of the land was used for market gardening or farming and the property was even run as a dairy.
In an authentic heritage learning environment you can get a taste of what life was like in the olden days. Have a go at cooking damper, washing and ironing the old-fashioned way or milking a fake cow. Learn some traditional old crafts such as knitting, hand sewing and rug making, or play some old fashioned games.
There is also an interesting collection of early 20th century household furniture and other household objects, horse drawn implements and farming equipment.
Bring the family along to the Buckingham House Open Day for a brilliant day out at this historical rural property. Before you leave enjoy a yummy sausage sizzle.
