According to historians, Hermit Park originated from the name of the home of one of its most colourful residents, Leopold Ferdinand Sachs, a banker known to hold great parties at his home at the end of The Avenue, Hermit Park. 73 Armstrong St, Hermit ParkHERMIT Park’s proximity to the city, large blocks, good schools and traditional style houses continues to draw buyers.The suburb’s median house price has risen 4.7 per cent in the past three months to $342,500 while rental yields remain healthy at 4.9 per cent for houses and 7.4 per cent for units.Dean Dank from Explore Property Townsville sold 73 Armstrong St this month for $690,000.He said it was snapped up by a local family who liked the location close to the city, the home’s traditional Queenslander style and the size of the property.“They liked it because it was legal height underneath and it had heaps of rooms with two bedrooms upstairs and a study, three bedrooms downstairs, living areas on both levels, a deck and a veranda,” he said.Mr Dank said Hermit Park houses always attracted plenty of interest and had good attendance at open homes. 73 Armstrong St, Hermit ParkBy the 1880s, Hermit Park had become a place where well-to-do residents of Townsville moved to get away from the city, building large, elegant Queenslanders which are still sought after today. In 1902, St Matthew’s Anglican Church in Queens Rd was built. During the 1920s, St Joseph’s Catholic School opened in Norris St and Hermit Park State Primary School opened in 1924. In 1949, the Regent and Rising Sun Cinemas opened in Charters Towers Rd.By the 1970s, Hermit Park was classified as a low socio-economic area, but by the 2001 Census, its residents’ income equalled Townsville’s average wage and was higher than most of the western suburbs. Today Hermit Park is well placed to be one of the city’s premium suburbs and is only 5km from the CBD.last_img read more

The Wellington-Circle softball-baseball games had been postponed three other times because of the fickle Kansas weather.But the doubleheaders got played Tuesday afternoon, even if another double-header with Andover scheduled on Tuesday (another make-up) had to be canceled to make way for the league game. Unfortunately for both Crusader varsity squads it was a tough evening. Both teams got swept…WHS Baseball:Wellington’s baseball team can’t seem to shake this losing streak. The Crusaders fell to 3-13 for the season with a 4-3 and 11-2 double-header loss to Circle.In game one, Wellington took Circle into extra innings but could not seal the deal – a problem the team has had all season.Circle had a 1-0 lead after two and 3-0 after four. Then in the top of the sixth, Wellington made its move with a three-run inning. Junior Parker Daugherty smacked a 2BI single and Trevor Nance had a RBI double to knot the game up at 3-all.That scored remained until the bottom of the eighth when Circle scored the game-winning run.Wellington had nine hits but committed four errors. Circle had eight hits and had two errors. Jalen Macias started and received four hits, walked six and struck out five. He had an ERA of 1.17. Ben DeJarnett came in relief and was attributed with the loss in two innings pitched although he did not give up an earned run. DeJarnett gave up a hit and walked. He also struck out one player for a 0.00 ERA.Nance had a .750 on-base percentage and had a 1.00 slugging percentage.In the second game, Wellington fell behind 7-1 in the first four innings and didn’t threaten thereafter, losing 11-2. Wellington again committed four errors.Gage Dunn was the losing pitcher for Wellington. The Crusaders were to host Clearwater today, but the weather doesn’t look good for a doubleheader at Sellers Park.Circle 4, Wellington 3 Game 2: Circle 11 Wellington 9 Loss. Hefley.  Win. Horyna Girls softball:Wellington fell to 9-7 for the season with a couple of close losses to Circle. The Crusaders lost the first game in the bottom of the seventh to Circle 7-6.
