           "CURTIS HOUSE"

Opened On 30 November 1990 By P. O`Callaghan,
Plant Manager, Queensland Cement Limited.

Named in honour of the Curtis family name and Lloyd Curtis and his tireless efforts for the Port Curtis Historical Society.

Known for years as "Bracewell House", this house was built in Mount Morgan early this century and moved to Mount Laroom in 1927.  Originally a two-storey house, a later move to Machine Creek, near Bracewell, saw only the top storey relocated 

"Bracewell House", rermained at Machine Creek for many years, until in 1990, after being acquired by QCL, the house was donated and moved to the Historical Village where it was renovated by the Society and renamed "Curtis House" .

It will become the caretaker`s residence.
