Probably a heritage planting from Rock Valley homestead

This may be Yucca filamentosa (or Adams Needle) did it have cotton like threads hanging out from the side of the leaves?

Definitely no cotton like threads, just smooth glaucous sharply pointed leaves. It is probably a variety that was around in the early 1900s as Rock Valley was built in 1890s. There are more Yuccas at the Mount Domain property (built around the same time) further up the valley so were probably a popular garden plant - hardy and drought resisting.
