Inigo Jones Exhibition

Peachester History Committee presents the _Inigo Jones Collection_ - celebrating the life of Inigo Jones, Weather Wizard. Inigo Jones (1872-1954) was born in Croydon, England, and migrated to Queensland in 1874. Inigo moved to Peachester with his parents in 1892, settling on a property they called Crohamhurst. He brought with him a set of weather instruments, and on 2 February 1893 Inigo measured the record rainfall for Australia which still stands, 35.71 inches (907mm) in 24 hours.
