Built in 1866 for Joseph Bishop, son of one the district’s first settlement families. Mill Cottage is one of Port Lincoln’s earliest remaining buildings and celebrating its 150th Birthdat in 2015.
The Cottage became a Museum following the death of Amy Bishop, daughter of Joseph in 1963. Miss Bishop was a noted water colour artist, and the museum features a number of her paintings of the Lower Eyre Peninsula.
Mill Cottage is a snapshot of early life in Port Lincoln with Victorian and Edwardian artefacts ranging from clothing, toys and items of domestic life. Many of the belongings were from the Bishop family, which are sure to delight adults and children alike.
The Museum has indoor and outdoor displays including the original kitchen, rain water tank and well. Special chasing exhibitions are held in Amy’s Studio.
Staffed by a group of knowledgeable volunteer guides, your experience is guaranteed to be interesting and informative. Do not miss out of this family museum experience!
