A home of one's own
Clara Mills arrived in Tennant Creek in 1936. Her husband worked in the mines and was a prospector. She worked with the Country Women’s Association and provided meals for the troops who passed through Tennant Creek in the early war years. After the war she worked as a cook at the Tennant Creek and Goldfields Hotels.
Clara Mills’ landlord was Harold Nelson, who was a butcher in Tennant Creek but in 1922 had been the first Northern Territory elected Member of the House of Representatives. She recalled her first home in Noble Street.
