Eskbank House Museum Information

Eskbank House Museum in Lithgow is a historic home, with splendid furniture, display of Lithgow Pottery and other period pieces, blacksmith's forge and a coach-house.

Built in 1842 by Thomas Brown, Eskbank House is a sandstone building in the Georgian style. The four front rooms have been preserved much as they were in Thomas Brown's day, and contain some beautiful regency and early Victorian furniture.

The museum has an extensive collection of Lithgow Pottery, memorabilia and photographs of early Lithgow as well as a static steam engine display. The gardens contain a stone stable and coach house and an unusual stone hexagon garden shed and picnic area available to use.
