In memory of Miss Jeanette Grossmann
Headmistress 1890 - 1914
The Oral History Project was initiated by the Friends of Grossmann & Brough Houses.
It tells the stories of bright-eyed school girls during their formative years at Maitland Girls High School and aims to record an era of Grossmann & Brough Houses that once functioned as their school.
The stories are humorous and engaging and draw you into a little known history of Maitland.
We hope you enjoy their recollections!
Grossmann and Brough Houses and grounds are currently operated by the National Trust of Australia (NSW). Grossmann House is a restored Victorian house museum with furnishings and textiles open to the public. Brough House hosts the Australian Museum of Clothing & Textiles, Maitland Regional Museum, and a Fibre Makers Space with workshops.
