Goulburn Regional Art Gallery


Mainstreet Manfred

2 - 14 March 2013

In June 1887 members of the Goulburn Municipal Council finally decided on a front elevation design for a Town Hall. Architect E.C. Manfred had provided nine sketches for consideration and Local builder William Wilkie won the contract at a cost of £3439/3/5. The foundation stone was laid in the presence of the Governor on 19th December 1887 and the Mayor, Mr Gannon, opened the Town Hall
on 8 January, 1889.

Edmund Cooper Manfred (1856 – 1941) was Goulburn’s finest architect, designing many of the city’s civic, commercial and residential buildings. This exhibition highlights the architecture of E.C. Manfred including the Town Hall and the Goulburn Club in and around Goulburn’s Auburn Street
