Woolmers Foundation Inc
Woolmers is of outstanding cultural significance because it has continuous association with the one family (Thomas Archer and his descendants), providing and encapsulated record of six generations of the family and the changes to their lifestyle, from the time the land was first settled in the Longford area, to the death of the last heir in 1994. It is the longest association in Tasmania. Woolmers has small museum status. Visitors can take guided homestead tours around the homesteads containing furniture and personal effects of six generations.
Apart from the original house (1819) and the new additions in 1840's. The Extant outbuildings, workshop, cottages plant and artefacts are a unique record of the scale of operations of a substantial colonial pastoral estate. The Artefacts on the estate include plant, machinery, furnishings, soft furnishings, paintings, journals, family papers, sporting equipment and toys. Visitors can take a walk around our gardens and grounds including the national rose garden – which has 5,500 roses blooming from November – March each year.
