The Rocks assumed an unsavory aspect soon after the arrival of the First Fleet in 1788. Yet it also became home to countless, working class families, many of whose men folk worked on the wharves, and developed a strong community network. Almost inexplicably, a row of four terraces dating from 1844 has survived in Susannah Place. The transition to museum complex relied very heavily upon oral history research among former residents and is remarkable because the buildings have been stabilized but not restored.
