A Saunter Down Smith Street, Summer Hill

Your presenter will reveal some surprises in detailing the historic associations of many properties as you stroll along this street, the people and enterprises which made their mark over most of the last 200 years.

Smith Street began as a farm track which closely delineated the boundary between two significant landholdings of the early Colonial Era. On one side was the vast Canterbury Estate of Robert Campbell, land granted initially in 1794. The other side of the street was granted to Henry Kable, later owned by John Lackey then James Underwood. These were all significant pioneers of the Colony, as were many subsequent occupiers of the street.
Much of the late 19th Century architecture is still intact. Join us to see it for yourself.

The walk is intended to be duplicated over two dates each limited to 25 people. A small charge will be made to defray outlay, registration is essential.

The village centre has many opportunities for refreshment.
