Ayers House

It is History Week in South Australia; and throughout Adelaide, the suburbs and many country towns there are special displays and activities. Today I went on a guided tour of this lovely old 40 roomed Victorian styled mansion.

In the latter part of the 19th century it was the residence of one of South Australia's prominent citizens. The building is now a museum, operated by the national Trust. It is also a function centre.

There are lots of very interesting and valuable (predominately) 19th century items on display. Rooms are set up as they would have been when the residence was the home of Sir Henry Ayer and his family.
