Travelers circle globe to visit Georgetown attractions
Two Australian natives flew from their homes in Brisbane, Australia to Georgetown on Oct. 7 to partake of the town's tourist sights.
Lyndon Garbutt, an Australian attorney, and his travel buddy James Yang were most interested in viewing Georgetown’s first courthouse. Garbutt’s distant relative, James Cowles, Esq., was believed to have argued court cases in the courthouse in the late 1700s and early 1800s. Cowles resided in Milton at the time.
After a night of lodging at Georgetown’s 1836 Brick Hotel, the duo visited the Court of Chancery on The Circle and were given a tour of the facility by the court staff. The structure is the only freestanding Chancery Court in America and was unique to the visitors, as Australia does not have a Chancery Court.
Following their visit, the pair headed to Old New Castle and Boston to visit other historic locations.
