Newcastle: Attractions and more...
Obelisk has been victmised loads of times before. In the year 1819, ‘Commandant Colonel Morisett’ went on to appeal to Governor to obtain permission regarding building of a windmill for being utilized to grind flour. The year 1820 marked its completion. It came to be known by the name ‘Government Flour Mill’ then. As it stood upon a ‘natural hill’, windmill could be visible even from a distance. However, in the year 1847, decision was taken to have demolished this mill. It was bought by one of the residents of Newcastle thereafter. Such a thing resulted in strong protests amongst ‘shipping quarters’. Protest of this type forced government to do something in favor of shipping quarters. Obelisk Park was, however, constructed on this spot in the year 1850. It had been the place where old one had been located.
