First European SettlerPrint Page Print this page

A plaque indicates where the first European settler in the area, Doctor Barker lived.

The first settler was a Dr. Barker whose Ravenswood No.1 Run encompassed the present townsite. His homestead was located at what is now the northern end of town . It was on this property that a shepherd named John Worley found gold in 1851. Subsequently, thousands of prospectors from around the globe descended on the Mount Alexander area.
