This Day in History: 1997-06-03

The Toodyay Shire Council voted 5-2 not to purchase Avondown on Stirling Terrace, Toodyay.  The Council was not successful in receiving a grant from the National Tourism Development Programme for the development of an interpretive centre at Avondown, and Mercy House was no longer available for lease.
