Oak Lodge

18 Bridge St, Richmond TAS 7025, Australia

Introduction of Oak Lodge

Richmond, a small town of Oak Lodge on the southeast corner of Tasmania, is a historic manor house.

Built between 1831 and 1842, Oak Lodge was a fine double-decked Georgian cottage originally used as a gentleman's small town residence. The first owner of the hostel was Henry Buchum (Henry Buscombe), one of the former settlers in southeast Tasmania and the founder of Richmond Vision Villa (Prospect House), which had been used as a parish house, school and house. It was also a local doctor's clinic, where the resident doctor is a famous American-born doctor in town, William Clark (William Clark).

In 1998, the last hostess of, Oak Lodge, Muriel Horsford (Muriel Horsfall), donated Oak Lodge to (National Trust), the Australian National Trust, and opened it to the public. In 2013, due to poor financial conditions, The National Trust had planned to sell the estate, which was cancelled after strong opposition from Richmond residents. Visitors can still visit this historic manor in order to gain an insight into early colonial life, explore well-preserved rooms and roam freely in the original 19th-century beautiful gardens. Oak Lodge, on the other hand, retains the 19th-century style as much as possible, and time seems to stay here.
