Artist's Description

Clifford House was designed for use as a residential men’s club. However, the disastrous and prolonged fall in cattle prices saw the pastoralists involved with the original concept unable to finish the project. The partially completed building was subsequently leased to the Lands Department in 1860. Some eight years later, James Taylor, a pioneer and early settler of the Darling Downs, purchased Clifford House and set about finalising its construction. Twelve months later, in 1869, James Taylor, his wife Sara and their nine children took up residence. In its heyday, Clifford House boasted 30 rooms and carried a staff of six housemaids and three gardeners.
