Emmaville Cottage is one of a number of key buildings around Orange with connections to one Australia’s best-known poets, Banjo Paterson. Emmaville Cottage located near the Botanic Gardens is a tangible link to the period more than 150 years ago when Paterson was born.
The prefabricated cottage is believed to date from the 1850s. The American redwood panels were shipped from the United States and assembled to build large numbers of cottages in Australia. The cottage is believed to be one of the last farm buildings from the Narrambla property. The cottage, now missing its lean-to and out buildings, was relocated to the Orange Botanic Gardens precinct in April 2013.
