Event description

Description

Join the exhibition curator Rebecca Turnbull on this special tour of the award-winning exhibition Flood! In particular, Rebecca will discuss the 1867 flood (150 years ago) and how it changed a community.

In 1867 Windsor experienced its highest-ever recorded flood, with the river rising 63 feet 2 inches (19.26 metres). It created an inland sea from Windsor to the Blue Mountains, and resulted in unprecedented damage and hardship. Twelve members of the Eather family lost their lives in the flood, which affected the farms around Windsor, Wilberforce, Pitt Town, Riverstone and parts of Richmond. At Howe House (now part of Hawkesbury Regional Museum) floodwater filled the basement and came halfway up the walls of the ground floor.
