About this blog

This blog is about the history of the Koo-Wee-Rup Swamp and neighbouring areas, such as Pakenham, Cranbourne and Garfield, and any other historical subjects I feel like writing about. It's my own original research and writing and if you live in the area you may have read some of the stories before in the Koo-Wee-Rup Swamp Historical Society newsletter or the Koo-Wee-Rup township newsletter, The Blackfish, or the Garfield township newsletter, The Spectator.

100 years ago this week - Kirwan's store

100 years ago this week - John Kirwan, store owner, was caught illegally selling alcohol.  Kirwin's store was on the corner of the Thirteen Mile and the Main Drain. It was later taken over by James and Edith McMannis.
