MORE than 2500 history buffs inspected the Lowan historic homestead at Kalangadoo over the weekend to raise money for the Royal Flying Doctor Service.

Among them was the Adelaide Lord Mayor Martin Haese and Mayoress Genevieve Theseira-Haese.

Mr Haese is a great, great grandson of pioneer William Allen Crouch who built the two-storied brick structure 150 years ago in 1868.

While wearing the mayoral chains of office for one of his last official duties before his weekend retirement from civic affairs, Mr Haese was given the honour of unveiling a commemorative bronze plaque on an outer wall to mark the anniversary.

The Lord Mayor commended current Lowan owners Gary and Wendy Kilsby
