The Springfield Collection

Springfield-Faithfull family collection

The Springfield–Faithfull family collection is a rich record of the life and times of one family and their merino sheep property at Springfield in New South Wales. This precious collection – stored in the family's private museum for many years – reveals the story of early settler William Pitt Faithfull and the generations of his family who called Springfield home.

Share the story of this family's lives and loves, from the grand weddings, private picnics and much loved pets to the runnings of a successful pastoral property.
