Women’s Voices in Samson House
Enjoy a look inside Samson House, the home of a family that arrived in Western Australia at the start of European settlement now filled with treasures from three generations. Hear about some of the remarkable women who were born or married into the Samson family.
Fanny, Mary, Daphne and Rita. Learn more about these four women when you enjoy a look inside Samson House, one of Fremantle’s ‘prettiest little villas’, built for Mary in the 1890s. In the house are objects that belonged to Fanny, an early Swan River colonist. You’ll discover that Daphne loved dogs, Rita played a leading role in the Red Cross and more.
Make a day of it and combine this event with a visit to the 1829 Cliff Street premises of the Samson family business in the morning. If driving, consider parking on the CAT bus route to attend Mrs Samson of Fremantle in the morning and Women’s Voices in Samson House in the afternoon.
