Politician, philanthropist, medical practitioner and administrator, Arthur Renwick played an important part in Sydney’s history and was very prominent in many activities. He had much to do with the introduction of old age pensions in our State.

Renwick, knighted in 1904, suffered great financial losses and was forced to sell his magnificent home ‘Abbotsford House’ on the Parramatta River and to part with his fine library. The house is still a private residence though surrounded by many waterfront apartments.

Henry Lawson died in a small cottage almost opposite Abbotsford School and a memorial was completed to commemorate this great Australian.
