Description :

Premises of 'Glen Ewin' jam, chutney, and sauce factory at Houghton, South Australia.

Scottish horticulturalist and landscape gardener George McEwin settled in the Tea Tree Gully district in 1843. Initially employed by George Anstey, he established his own vineyards and orchards at Houghton in late 1844. McEwin began manufacturing jam in 1862 and members of the McEwin family continued manufacturing at this site until 1988.
