Maud Terrace: 43-47 Lisgar Street. Junee, New South Wales

Maud Terrace in Junee is one of those very rare examples of a rural terrace house.  Its development harks back to the days when Junee was a gold rush boomtown.   Junee is located betwen Wagga Wagga and Cootamundra on the main railway line between Sydney and Melbourne.  Gold was discovered in the 1860s and by the 1880s Junee was a very prosperous place.  Maud Terrace is just out of the centre of town and the row of four terraces built in 1886 would have been a speculative development.
