Macquarie House

Macquarie House

Stuart A.
Description
A fine freestanding Georgian simplified classical style warehouse constructed in 1829-30 and a rare survivor of its type. The building is an invaluable townscape element. Historically significant for its associations with the prominent merchant Henry Reed, for whom it was built, and with Batman and Fawkner, who reputedly requisitioned stores here for journeys across Bass Strait which led to the settlement of Melbourne. #1830 #civic #Georgian #heritage #historic #Launceston #settlement #Tasmania #warehouse
