This three-program Centenary series, takes Mugga-Mugga, Calthorpes’ House and Lanyon, as pivotal points to examine the changing face of life on the Limestone Plains. August 2013 is the one hundred year anniversary of the Curley family moving to the property from Duntroon so we begin the series at Mugga-Mugga. The series will look at such intriguing decisions, made by ordinary people, which demonstrate historically vital threads connecting public and private activity.
