Fun Fact: The history of Thompsons Corner

Thompsons Corner is named after Andrew Thompson (1773-1810), a convict  who received a grant of 100 acres in 1796 opposite the signal station in Pennant Hills. It was founded by Thomas Thompson who built the area's first general store on the corner of Pennant Hills and Castle Hill roads.

Workmen on the railway from Strathfield to Hornsby established a camp and stores depot there in about 1890. During Lachlan Macquarie's governorship (1810-21), a timber sawing establishment stood near today's Thompsons Corner. In those early days the pit-sawyers roamed the countryside, and the saw pits were set up at various places close to forest areas. In the early 1990s, one of the last mills was demolished, having stood at the bottom of Hill Road.

Thompsons Corner is home to West Pennant Hills Public School (established in 1850), one of Australia's oldest surviving government schools.
