Cherry Gardens History Corner

As a fairly new comer to SA and Cherry Gardens, I enjoy learning more about the history of the district and details of life in the early days. We are lucky to have some documented memories and plan on sharing those in the newsletter over the coming months.

Settlement history timeline

We thought we could start with the settlement history timeline covering 175 years, between 1830 and 1984.
Did you know that the first Cherry Gardens cricket team was formed around 1872?

Coming next will be some memories from Irene Harvey who was born in 1917 and whose grandparents, Isaac and Elizabeth Jacobs were among the Cherry Gardens' original settlers.
