    Molonga Estate was owned by my great grandmother Ruby née Johnstone Young and her husband James Edgar Young. James known as Edgar was an architect and collector for the British Museum. He designed and built their first house at 5 Molonga Terrace called Molonga and then designed / built and moved to 4 Bank rd also called Molonga after Ruby’s family homes in North QLD. Ruby was one of the first female JP’s in QLD and was involved in the founding of the Womens Electoral Lobby in QLD. She also donated the land for the Scout Hall in Young st. They were also were involved in starting the QLD Naturalist Society and were some of the founders of the Arboretum there is a hoop pine there planted by Edgar. They were both very active in Brisbane society.
