Ellen Kelly’s release from prison in February 1881 is commemorated by this photo taken at the Kelly homestead. Scarcely more than two months later, Constable Robert Graham visited here with Father Thomas Egan of Wangaratta and gained Mrs Kelly’s help in defusing the ongoing Kelly rebellion.

In January 1859, when his son Ned was nearly four years old, John Kelly built the family a timber cottage in Beveridge. It was a typical Irish style of cottage with an earthen floor and drainage running between rooms. Internally, there were only two rooms and there was no ceiling, while the bluestone chimney dominated the house.

Isaiah ‘Wild’ Wright ‘lost’ a horse while at the Kelly homestead and failed to tell Ned Kelly that it was stolen. Ned found the horse and rode it past the Greta Police Station to earn a brutal pistol-whipping from Constable Hall, who also tried to shoot him. Wild was sentenced to eighteen months while Ned was sentenced to three years hard labour.
