Andrew Young Arthur (1838-1906) came to Heidelberg with his wife Mary Sinclair nee Campbell (1835-1909) in 1872, with their two children John (1868-1941) and Elizabeth (1869-1942) and stayed in this house. They opened a butchery. One can see the house in the 1874 and 1880 picture of Heidelberg. Extensions on both sides of the house have been added. There is a plaque in the Methodist Church in honour to the two children, Andrew and Annabella, that died of Dysentery in 1897.
