The township of Freestone was a station on the now disassemled Warwick - Maryvale trail line. There is what appears to be an ex-church (possibly Catholic?) now a house in town near where the train station and line crossing would have been. There is an operating Anglican church on the road to Upper Freestone. The Upper Freestone cemetery is literally in the middle of a (plowed) field. The remaining graves are (mostly?) from the O'Dempsey family.
There was a (now disassembled) 'Via recta' train line Warwick-Freestone-Gladfield-Maryvale. The article on VIA RECTA (right way) shows photos of Freestone in 1920s and 1950s.
Was once in Glengallan Shire (circa 1980).
