History

High Street was named by Surveyor General Roe - as was customary in English towns, the main street of the town was named High Street. Eastward from William Street the roadway was completed by convict labour after the Town Hall was built in 1887. High Street around the Town Hall closed to traffic in 1966. The High Street Mall was trialled in November 1973 and made a permanent pedestrian mall in 1975.
Built as a War Service home c.1926. Built by Mr Williams for a cost of £518. House occupied by Robert Poole.
This place was shortlisted for the Fremantle Award in 1996 in the Heritage Category.
House, 288 High Street was included on the Fremantle Municipal Heritage Inventory when it was first adopted in 18 September 2000 and the Heritage List on 8 March 2007. The Statement of Significance for the place was: House, 288 High Street, is a single storey timber and iron house dating from the 1920s. The place has aesthetic value for its contribution to the streetscape and the surrounding area. It is representative of the typical building stock located within the residential areas of Fremantle. It is historically significant as a representation of typical workers' houses in the Fremantle area. The place is a simple example of the Federation Bungalow style of architecture.
In 2000 the physical evidence was described as: Asymmetrical plan house with hipped roof. Simple timber ornamentation of gable over projecting room. Wide verandah on two sides.
Verandah roof supported on simple timber posts. Weatherboarding has been oiled.
