The Story of a Building

Historian-in-Residence Sharon Slater will host The Story of a Building, an informal talk exploring the history of our building on Wednesday, 16 August at 1pm as part of National Heritage Week 2023. Admission is free and booking is not required.

The history of the Ormston House building has long been an inspiration for our artistic programme. Sharon Slater has been researching the political, economic, and social history of 9–11 Patrick Street and our unusual home inspired by the architecture of the Venetian palazzo. Sourcing evidence from local and regional newspapers, as well as advertisements and trade directories, she has pieced together the timeline, from the first business registered at 9 Patrick Street, to today’s Cultural Resource Centre.
