The Eskbank House collection contains more than 5 000 items, including over 2 000 pieces produced or associated with Lithgow Pottery, 80 items relating to the Lithgow Woollen Mills, furniture, a fully restored Hansom Cab, books, jewellery, household paraphernalia and a photograph and document book relating to Sir Joseph Cook, Prime Minister of Australia from 1913-1917. The items in the Sir Joseph Cook collection have national significance because of their association with the former prime minister. The rest of the collection provides insights into the development and history of the ceramic and textile industries in Australia due to its association with Lithgow Pottery (Australia’s oldest commercial pottery) and the Lithgow Woollen Mills (one of the oldest tweed and cloth manufacturers in Australia).

This collection is one of a kind. Our collection consists of a vast number of artefacts which have been collected since the inception of the organisation. The collection is important because it describes the history of our community. It is vital that this collection is preserved for future generations.
