Demolition St John's School Old Library to Make Way for Play Space


The New Toilet Block Takes Shape

Wellington House circa 1883
   
[Article: Ref Harrington Earl]

... was built by former Acting Premier of Victoria, George David Langridge, a man who forged a career in Victorian politics and championed the cause of the working classes, having started as a carpenter, then moving to the goldfields to try his luck. After Mr Langridge's deat in 1891, the property was occupied by Edgar Wilkins, MLA and Mayor of Collingwood. In 1923, the property became a convent to the Sisters of Charity, with a foundation stone commemorating its opening by Archbishop Mannix. The most recent residents were the Emmaus Community. This faded gem is in need of substantial renovation. Its grand entry opens to two spectacularly large and interconnecting drawing rooms. Upstairs has seven rooms. There is a coachman's cottage/stable at the rear.
