DESCRIPTION

 

Aldersyde is now little more than a hamlet consisting of a wheat-bin, a few houses, a church and a CWA hall.

The area is primarily a cereal cropping district and the large grain handling facility in town is just one of many scattered through the landscape.

HISTORY

 

A townsite was established on the Brookton-Kunjin Railway when land was resumed from four existing properties in 1913.

Mr Frederick Pyke had named his property Aldersyde and that was the name chosen for the new town when it was gazetted in 1915.

Other names that were suggested for the town were Nuralgin and Markegin.

A school opened on November 23rd 1925 and was initially held in the town hall. The first teacher was Miss E. A. Brinkworth.

When the Markegin school closed the building was moved to Aldersyde and opened on February 3rd 1928. It closed in 1968 and today only a small memorial plaque marks the spot where it once stood.
