Possibly the home of G. P. Barnes, the mayor of Warwick. This asymetrical bungalow-roofed house is complemented by a decorative balustrade around the front verandah and lattice work on the side verandah. A curved driveway leads to the front entrance steps.
Warwick was the first town on the Darling Downs established in 1849 on the banks of the Condamine River. The rich grazing land around the area supports horse and cattle studs, fine wool and grain. In 1871 the railway from Ipswich came through. Warwick is situated 158km south west of Brisbane on the Cunningham Highway. (Information taken from: M. Barca, Explore Historic Australia, 2002)
