Ormiston House, ~1871 StateLibQld 1 134873 Captain Louis Hope's residence, Ormiston House, Cleveland district, ca.1871.jpg
Ormiston House, ~1871

Originally part of the township of Cleveland, early industry included a brickworks established by James Maskell on the eastern bank of Hilliards Creek in 1852 and fellmongery (wool scour) owned by a Thomas Blackett Stephens until the early 1860s. Joseph Clark ran cattle on Ormiston from 1855 until he relinquished the lease in 1858. [4]

Land around Ormiston was bought in 1853 by Captain Louis Hope, a Scottish aristocrat and a founder of the Queensland sugar industry. [5] Hope built Ormiston House from 1858 and 1865 as the centre of a 325-acre (1.32 km2) sugar estate. [6] Ormiston House is one of the finest examples of colonial architecture in Queensland. [5]

Sugar Generic name for sweet-tasting, soluble carbohydrates

Sugar is the generic name for sweet-tasting, soluble carbohydrates, many of which are used in food. The various types of sugar are derived from different sources. Simple sugars are called monosaccharides and include glucose, fructose, and galactose. "Table sugar" or "granulated sugar" refers to sucrose, a disaccharide of glucose and fructose. In the body, sucrose is hydrolysed into fructose and glucose.

The property was originally called Woojanness, but was renamed Ormiston after the Hope's family ancestral village of Ormiston, Scotland. It has an ornamental garden that dates from the building of the house. Hope continued with his plantation until 1875, until he lost a dispute over access to his sugar mill and decided to dismantle it. Since the 1960s the house has been a museum. Although the house was called Ormiston, the area around it was still known as Cleveland for many years. When the railway came through the area in 1889, the new railway station and the area around it also became known as Ormiston. [7]
