This history was written in 1923 because it was felt that the history of the "very earliest settlement of the Southern Corner of the Darling Downs has been brushed aside".
Thomas Hall writes about the history and pioneers of the Warwick District and Darling Downs region. Details of its discovery and settlement, along with the Aborigines, climate and scenery are all mentioned. Churches, roads and streets, banking, newspapers, law enforcement, water, crops, saw mills and other occupations are all covered.
This volume includes portrait photographs of the early settlers, a detailed list of land purchases prior to 1852 in the Town of Warwick giving date of sale, allotment number, section, area, purchaser and price. In all it is a valuable record of the early history of this region.
