Tresca was built around the time of 1909 – 1911 and was established as an orchard farm.  After WWII, Tresca became the property of the Education Department who leased some of the land to the Golf Club and established the Area School Farm on the remainder.

The Fairbridge Society acquired Tresca in 1957 as a Centre for Child Migrants from the UK.

The Home was officially opened in March in 1958 by the Governor of Tasmania Sir Ronald Cross.

Almost 100 children were part of the Tresca family over the years whilst being educated at the local primary and high schools with some going onto University.
