Heritage listed Crawford House was built in 1910 for Mr William Ambrose Crawford and his wife Olive in Alstonville on the North Coast of New South Wales.
It is managed by Alstonville Plateau Historical Society who have lovingly restored the interior. The Society has worked with the local community to obtain objects, archaeological materials, photographs, oral histories and texts which tell the story of Alstonville and surrounding districts.
The Society holds exhibitions and events throughout the year and has a Research Centre, extensive Library and local history publications available to purchase. Visitors, groups and students are always welcome.
