Be guided through the history of the Main Street of Rutherglen with Golden Soil - The History of Rutherglen.
The township was originally settled by squatters in 1836 but the discovery of gold right in the Main Street in September 1860 created much excitement and the township literally sprung up in three months. The town grew to a population of 20,000 by 1861.
Wander down the main street of the township and view ornate period buildings, significant historical markers and learn about many of the characters that helped to shape Rutherglen’s earliest years.
