History of the DCC house
The house on the corner of Monbulk and McKillop Roads was built by a man name Ralph Proctor in 1946. Ralph bought the property when he moved back to Wandin after serving in the Royal Australian Air Force during WWII. Ralph and his wife, Helen, raised their children in the house, extending it as their family grew to seven children, including two sets of twins! While he lived in the house, Ralph turned the land surrounding the house into a berry and fruit farm and was part of the Silvan Fruit Growers Association. Later owners of the house further extended it, leading to its considerable size nowadays. Ralph wrote a book called ‘Aim High’, which captures some of the history
As part of the redevelopment works at the house, the plan is to display and honour some of the history of the house, for visitors to appreciate the narrative and story which has led it to being used by DCC as part of the bigger story of Jesus today.
