Lars Anderson House

Lars Anderson House
I found this colonial house on the main street of Esk.

I think it's now used as a restaurant / B&B.

In 1900 Lars appeared before a Qld Govt. Committee concerning a proposed railway extension. Lars Anderson was a Danish Sawmiller who lived in Esk in the late 1800's and early 1900's. He built the Christ Church that stands in Milton. Anderson and his two brothers were very successful in this industry, partly because he had been instrumental in developing a system of light rail to extract timber from areas which were previously inaccessible due to difficult terrain. It is probable that Andersen was chosen rather than a local builder because he had constructed the Anglican Church at Esk.

Serge Prokhorov, Dorothée Wenzel have particularly liked this photo

Thanks Nada. No I don't speak German - but Google Translate works fairly well (I also don't speak French) ;-)
