Beulah is a rare and unique property acquired by Sydney Living Museums in 2010 as one of its Endangered Housing Fund projects.

The significant heritage items on the property include the 1830s homestead, the footings of the homestead’s previous outbuildings and vestiges of its former formal gardens, the dilapidated timber farm buildings and summer house, remnant post and rail fencing, the round yard in front of the homestead, and the stone bridge on the driveway in from Appin Road. The property provides rare evidence of agricultural practices on a farming property that was continuously occupied and worked from the 1820s to the 1960s.

Explore the site by selecting one of the locations above.

The voices are of former Head of Heritage Elisha Long, Director of Heritage and Collections Ian Innes, former Project Manager Richard Taylor and Ray Slee, who coordinated work undertaken on the homestead by the Appin Men's Shed.
