A month in Argentina (4)

John Argentine Campbell was a formidable sportsman and polo player. After being schooled at Fettes College and going up to Cambridge John returned to the Argentine and c. 1905 built the house below in the English style on land which formed part of his fathers estate.

In the garden stands an enormous english oak tree.

House at Estancia El Jabali mapped HERE

John’s grandson now lives in the house and runs a large dairy herd on Estancia el Jabali. I was honoured to be invited to stay and learn more about the family.
