Haigslea is a locality split between the City of Ipswich and the Somerset Region in South East Queensland, Australia.[2][3] In the 2016 census Haigslea had a population of 468 people.[1]

History[edit]

The area was originally called Kirchheim by the many German people who settled there as immigrants between 1865 and 1873.[4] It was renamed Haigslea due to anti-German sentiment during the First World War. The locality is named after General Douglas Haig. He served in India in 1887. He was appointed as the regiment's adjutant in 1888, and appointed as Commander-in-chief of the British Army in France from 1915 to 1918.[2][3]

On 9 July 1873 St Paul's Lutheran church was dedicated by Pastor C. Baustadt. A manse was built beside the church in 1874. The manse was replaced with a new building in 1895 (this building was moved to Marburg in 1904). On 17 November 1923 the church was destroyed in a cyclone.  A replacement church was built at Haigslea (formerly Kirchheim) and re-dedicated on 13 April 1924. A new church building was opened in April 1924 with 300 people in attendance. On 7 March 1971 the church held its last service before closing. The church building is no longer on the site.[4][5]

Walloon Scrub State School opened on 12 July 1876.[6] In September 1884 it was renamed Kirchheim State School.[7] By 1885 it had 95 students under headmaster Mr Berry assisted by three pupil teachers.[8] On 16 October 1916 it was renamed Haigslea State School.[9]

The first hotel in the area opened in the late 1870s. It was the Crown Hotel built by Wiegand Raabe. By 1885 Henry Lutz was the publican.[8] The site has been continuous in used as a hotel with the current building, the Sundowner Hotel, built in the late 1970s.[10]

By 1885 a Wesleyan Methodist Church had been established in the area.[8]

By 1885 a German Evangelical Lutheran Church was established in the area.[8] In 1896 it became a Wesleyan Methodist Church. In 1981, having closed, the building was moved to Haigslea Uniting Church to be used as a church hall.[11]

A Congregational Church opened in 1911 at 765-767 Thagoona Haigslea Road (27°34′16″S 152°37′49″E / 27.5711°S 152.6303°E / -27.5711; 152.6303 (Haigslea Congregationa/Uniting Church (former))) by a break-away from St Paul's Lutheran Church by members of the congregation who wanted services held in English rather than German. In 1972 faced with declining congregations, Haigslea Congregational Church, Walloon Congregational Church, Rosewood Congregational Church and the Lowood Methodist Church joined together as the Lowood-Roseville Cooperative Parish. The Haigslea Congregation became the Haigslea Uniting Church in June 1977 as part of the amalgamation of the Congregational, Methodist and Presbyterian churches that created the Uniting Church in Australia. In 1981 the former Kirchheim/Haigslea Methodist Church was closed and relocated to this site as a church hall.[11] The Haigslea Uniting Church closed on 29 March 2020.[12][13][14][15]
