The Bankfoot House homestead was established in 1868, by William and Mary Grigor, in the Glass House Mountains locale. Cobb & Co coaches used Bankfoot House as a lunch stop and staging post, when travelling between Brisbane and the Gympie goldfields. Independent travellers used this iconic homestead for overnight stops, paying one shilling for dinner, one shilling for a bed and one shilling to feed and stable their horse. Bankfoot House owned its own dairy herd and also served as the Post Office.

Bankfoot House stayed in the same family for three generations. The Grigor, Burgess and Ferris families occupied Bankfoot House for more than one hundred and thirty years, all making a huge contribution to the local district in local industries, community life and local government.

Scone Time visitors will have the opportunity to view the current exhibition at Bankfoot House as well as taking a very enjoyable, FREE guided tour of the Bankfoot House Heritage Precinct.
