    A Piece of History

    As the longest running community-based arts and crafts association in the Moreton Bay Region, Hay Cottage has long been a place of interest for its historical value. Representing the oldest surviving privately constructed residence in the Moreton Bay Region, Hay Cottage was originally built in 1869 as a worker’s cottage. It was eventually sold to Charles Hay and his wife, where they raised their five children before the family moved on and the cottage was relocated to its present location.
