This lovingly updated home has been well-looked after and is in-keeping with the historic & country style of the area. Located on one of Queanbeyan’s best streets, this home is directly opposite the Queanbeyan Park and within 700m of the Queanbeyan CBD.


Built as the Johnston family home in 1908, Mary Johnston registered her home as a lying-in (birthing) hospital in 1910. In 1926, she extended the house by a further four rooms. In the 34 years that “Yvonne” operated as a birthing hospital, some 1,700 babies were born here.
The last baby was born here in November 1944 and Mary Johnston converted the home into a boarding house which she managed until her death in 1948. Three generations of the Johnston family have lived here until 1980. Since that time, the home has had only 3 other owners.


The name “Yvonne” was chosen as a pun, which was common at the time the house was built. The name “Evon” was the combination of two family names “Eva” & “Johnstone”. The spelling was then converted into a real name “Yvonne”.
