This site was established by Wal Pilz (1927-2016) to share historical information depicted in photos and images of old scenes of the Rylstone District. Wal's belief was that sharing history was the best way to create a living history for Rylstone and the surrounding district. In Wal's memory, the site will continue to operate as an online database and you are invited to contribute images and information. Please comment or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lue Homestead about 1920
Raffin built the homestead from bricks made and fired on the property near the woolshed and shearers' huts, which had been built by Dowling in 1900. The new house was finished in 1917 and called "Lue".
