Raglan is a town and locality in the Gladstone Region of Queensland, Australia. The Bruce Highway passes through Raglan. In the 2011 census, Raglan was included with neighbouring Ambrose and together had a population of 545.HistoryThe town name is simply derived from the name of the pastoral run and parish, both of which were named in honour of Fitzroy James Henry Somerset, First Baron Raglan (1788-1855), first Commander in Chief British Army in Crimea.Gold was found in Raglan in 1867. In August 1867 a nugget of gold was found. Described as "a monster", it was 16in long and 4in wide, weighing 30lb and worth £1,400. There were around 300 gold diggers active at the Raglan goldfield at that time.Raglan Creek Provisional School opened on 4 August 1879, but closed later the same year. It reopened in March 1883, and was upgraded to Raglan Creek State School in 1909. In 1911, it was renamed simply Raglan State School. The school closed on 13 December 1996.The Raglan Memorial Hall was built in about 1932 and was used for dances until 1990, after which it stood idle. It was relocated to the Calliope River Historical Village in March 2002 and officially re-opened by George Creed, the mayor of Calliope Shire.Heritage listingsRaglan has a number of heritage-listed sites, including: Langmorn Road: Langmorn Homestead Raglan Station Road: Parson's Inn Raglan Station Road: Raglan Homestead
