Every community has its pioneers. In Berowra, for many years we have claimed Mary Wall as our most important pioneering figure, but there are others who have played a significant role in creating the village and community.
Our newest exhibition, The Mother, The Father and The Matriarch celebrates three of these pioneering figures (yes, including Mary Wall), bringing the stories of these three formative figures to light. Some of these histories may not be quite what you expect, or indeed what you were taught as a child, but in The Mother, The Father and The Matriarch the team used rigorous research from both primary sources and the families to separate fact from fiction. These are the true stories of these pioneers, as approved by their families.
