This is where Ned Kelly, dressed in home-made plate metal armour and the infamous helmet, was captured and sent to gaol. Dan Kelly, Joe Byrne, and Steve Hart were with him and also had suits of armour.
I do not say what brought me to Glenrowan, but it seems much. Anyhow I could have got away last night, for I got into the bush with my grey mare, and lay there all night. But I wanted to see the thing end. Part of Ned Kelly's statement to the press.
The Glenrowan Inn, owned by Ann Jones, was burned to the ground by the police after the Kelly Gang siege in June 1880.
