History

As every year: Honour to Admiral Butsy, the famous son of the city

Before founding of the town there are some houses at the shore of the bay and in the wind-shadow by an island, for fishing people. 1602 Aerwin Swallop founded the city, sheltered by the so called "White Fort". At this time the town-area lay between the Waterfront and the Palisade Street.

After the railway reached Aerwinya in the year 1852 plans are made for a new town with an rectangular street-grid with the Aerwinya Alley and the townhall Street as backbones. In the first step this area reached to the 20th Street. 1881 the area further to the north to Barmbly Hill was incorporated.
