Alstonville Plateau Historical Society

The Alstonville Plateau Historical Society is currently planning an exhibition that centres on the Bulwinkel family of Alstonville.

At his passing in 1919, Charles was described as a great pioneer, being associated with many major institutions in Alstonville, namely the Agricultural Society, School of Arts, Alstonville Cooperative Refrigerating Company, Progress Association and Presbyterian Church.

His obituary also states that he was a kind and generous father to his eleven children.

While the society has some photographs of the family, it would like to contact descendants in the hope of finding additional photographs and stories, particularly of Bulwinkel’s daughters Greta Dennison, Rose Jackson, Irene Holland and Charlotte (known as Lottie) Cupples.

The society can be contact via email [email protected], phone 6628 1829 or by letter to PO Box 65 Alstonville 2477.
