‘Geraldton’, formerly known as ‘Belmore House’, is one of the oldest continuously occupied private dwellings in Scone. This book is not only about the history of the house and its progress but some of the special people who have occupied it.
Included are anecdotal vignettes of the relatively few owner/occupiers during Geraldton’s time span exceeding 150 years. Many have made enduring contributions to the local community and bequeathed substantial positive impact on society in Scone and its surrounding district.
It is also a documentary on the extraordinary contribution made by ‘people power’ from small communities and villages in the Upper Foyle Valley of County Tyrone, Ireland to the early development of Scone, Gundy and Moonan.
