This house was constructed as a town residence for George Moir, a prominent Albany district pioneer. Moir
established the 'Mongup' property near Borden. He originally owned all of Lots S11 and S12 between Frederick St
and Stirling Tce. The house commanded a view of the town jetty and was a good example of sloping block
construction with servants quarters and kitchen on the lower storey and owner's living quarters 'upstairs' at the
Frederick St frontage. The house was owned by the descendants of G Moir until 1980.
