Pearn's Steam World

In celebration of International Women's Day, we felt it was important to highlight the work of the late Jessie Pearn. Jessie Pearn (nee Newton) was a women ahead of her time. She was a very competent farmer in her own right and would have a go at any job that was required. Leading by example she provided a strong role model for her own three daughters and an inspiration for women to work hard and 'have a go'. Her leadership, drive and determination in the development years of Pearn's Steam world ensured the funds required to build the two distinctive sheds that houses our collection were found. She turned what was once a bare livestock sale yard site into a colourful garden, planting out and maintaining the extensive gardens that surround our complex. But her first love always remained meeting and greeting visitors and tour groups from all over the world. Following a short illness, Jessie passed away on the 20th December 2011. The legacy of her hard work and efforts live on for all to enjoy. ... See MoreSee Less

Jessie was a remarkable woman, as was the 3 of the Pearn Brothers wives. Left often on their own while the men spent the days/weeks/years working the land and on the engines. Behind each of these 3 men was a strong loving wife and mothers, remarkable women who did everything to support their husbands and families. Jessie sure was a leading example for the entire community. I of course was attached to Verdun and Dorothy Pearn, who in my eyes were like adoptive grandparents, they were some of my best childhood memories of living out at Hagley. Of course Jessie too was one to put out an extra plate when i was visiting. Nothing was ever to much for these 3 families to go the extra mile, and likewise their children who have supported their work through to today. Best community on the planet!

Beautiful Lady 💕

Lovely lady!

Just incase you missed Southern Cross News Tasmania on Thursday night here is a copy of news story we featured in with our new edition to our line up of engines, a 1923 Aveling and Porter colonial traction engine. It will take some work to clean up, but we have a devoted team to work on it. ... See MoreSee Less
