History of the Cottage

In memory of one of Toowoomba's early settlers, the cottage is named after Augusta Florence Alford who owned the cottage from 1901 to 1920. Augusta's husband was Henry King Alford, whose family were among the early settlers to the area.

The first time that the name 'Toowoomba' appeared on a public document was when it was written on Henry's baptismal certificate at the first Church of England service held on August 29th, 1852. It was Henry's mother who gave the future city of Toowoomba its name. Henry had various pastoral interests and was elected Mayor of Toowoomba in 1911 and 1912.
