Nazareth House in Bluff Point, Geraldton was established in 1941 and run by the Poor Sisters of Nazareth. Its first residents were children from one year old who were private admissions, and ‘destitute’ aged people. Nazareth House also housed child migrants sent from Britain and Malta (1947-1966), with 50 to 75 living there often for years at a time. From 1961 young boys were admitted and from 1965 some Aboriginal children were placed there. From the late 1970s no children were admitted to Nazareth House, which continued as an aged care facility.
