Brickendon Historic Farm and Convict Village was built by William Archer in 1824; the village is still owned by his descendants. The complex represents a genuine Georgian farming village, complete with homestead, convict-built Gothic chapel, Dutch barns, chicken house, blacksmith shop and tool shed. William developed Brickendon into a mixed farming enterprise with cropping being a major focus, using a convict workforce of up to 50 people who lived in the tiny village he created. ?
