King Cottage was built around 1880 by Henry King and was owned by his family until 1923 when it was sold to the Carlson family. In 1966 it was purchased by the City of Bunbury and subsequently leased to the Bunbury Historical Society. The rooms of the cottage are furnished to fit the period from the 1880s to the 1950s. The artefacts displayed are part of the Society’s collection reflecting the way of life for a family in Bunbury during that period.
