The life of dashing James McAra Mitchel was full of secrets adventures, politics, death, pioneer challenges, insane asylum admissions, bankruptcies and the occasional happy story to tell.
In the late 1800s, Mitchel was the Station Manager at Rockbank estate one of the largest properties in Victoria. At the time the property stretched all the way to Lancefield. Life took a dramatic turn and in 1900 he was taken to the Kew Insane Asylum with “Anxiety over business”.
