Riversdale Homestead

Once settled at Carwell the Vincent-Nevell family continued to buy in the area, acquiring Riversdale on the Cudgegong in 1837. Three years after Vincent's death in 1848, his daughter and John Nevell built the present stone homestead at Carwell. With large sheep-flocks, many shepherds, a major woolshed and a cemetery which was the de facto general cemetery for the south-western part of the shire, Carwell was a highly significant complex.1 The Vincent-Nevell family also built the stone house (Portion 1, Mead Parish, Co. Roxburgh) which survives at Flatlands.
