The home

The Curtin Family Home has been more than a house. It was a much-loved home for John and Elsie Curtin, their children John and Elsie, Elsie’s mother Annie Needham and, after World War II, their grandchildren. It was a base for John Curtin as his political stature grew, and for Elsie Curtin as she maintained a presence in his electorate and cared for their family. It was easily accessed by his constituents and its modest size affirmed the family’s unpretentious lifestyle.
