A Pictorial History of Bramfield Township

The Elliston History Group presents Bramfield: A pictorial and digital display at the Original Council Chambers. Travel back to the early days of Bramfield, when it was a little-known village striving to supply a touch of civilisation to many. Named in 1849 by Thomas Cooper Horne after his home village of Bramfield in England, it was surveyed in 1876. However, the reliance on cutter crossing the bar at Waterloo Bay resulted in the Port of Elliston progressing instead. Bramfield fought for its existence but lost the battle. Bramfield is home to a small vibrant community, proud of their history.
