Boorowa: over 160 years of White Settlement


Helen V Lloyd, Toveloam Pty Ltd, Panania, 1990.

What began as research on the author’s own family grew into a general history of the Boorowa district covering themes ranging from the Aboriginal occupation of the land and the early squatting period through the commercial and civil development of the town to its involvement in wars and the lighter side of small-town life. It is a colorful history with more than a tinge of ‘green’, influenced by the influx of nineteenth-century Irish immigrants who settled in the area.
