William Stephens purchase 100 acres in the Junction from his father, Thomas Blacket Stephens. William Stephen was first Mayor of South Brisbane, member of Queensland Parliament, and company director and farmer. T.B. Stephens once owned The Brisbane Courier, and was a businessman and politician who also played an influential role in the development of early Brisbane. On the property William Stephens built the Waldheim homestead, at a cost of £300. The name “Waldheim” meant “home in the forest.” Junction Park State School shared a double gate at the end of the Waldheim laneway into the property. The Waldheim homestead became the Clansman Restaurant in the late twentieth century, and now is a childcare centre.
