The location marked "7" on the Euroa Map is the site of the National Bank that was held up by the Kelly Gang on 10 December 1878. The Gang of Four first created a base for the robbery by bailing up ‘Faithfulls Creek’ homestead’s occupants - an out-station of the 80,000 acre Euroa Run some 3½ miles away. The homestead was taken over at 12.30pm on 9 December and it was 32 hours later that the Kelly Gang finally left the homestead with their takings.
The telegraph lines into town were cut prior to the robbery. The armed robbery took place just after 4.00pm. The Gang made off with 2,260 pounds and a 31oz gold ingot.
They took the bank staff and the manager’s family with them back to the homestead.
When the Gang left the homestead that night there were 37 hostages who had been caught in the hold up.
