Ellenbrook – What is in a name?

The following article is taken from LWP Ellenbrook’s Facebook page.

Did you know that each of our eight villages in Ellenbrook, as well as the name Ellenbrook itself, has a story behind it?

Ellenbrook, for example, is named after Lady Ellen Stirling, the wife of Perth’s Lieutenant Governor, Sir James Stirling.

Ellen was apparently known for her playfulness, youthfulness, a passion for learning, modern thinking, vibrancy, tolerance and acceptance. It is these qualities that were the inspiration behind the design and planning of the Ellenbrook community.

If you look closely, you will notice that throughout the town centre, Ellen’s personality is reflected in the public artwork and landscaping.

One of the key roads in the town centre is named for her (Ellen Stirling Parade) and a major distributor road (Drumpellier Drive) after the Scottish ancestral seat of the Stirling family.
