The City of Fremantle has identified this place as being of considerable cultural heritage significance in its own right within the context of Fremantle and its conservation is a priority.

Statement of Significance

The place is historically significant as a former bank representing the development of Fremantle’s Old Port City as a centre of commerce and trade from the gold boom period of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The place is significant because, when viewed from the street, it is a substantially intact example of a commercial building which contributes to the very significant Old Port City of Fremantle. The place is of social significance as evidenced by its classification by the National Trust.

Physical Description

Original two storey rendered corner building with two storey Colorbond additions above. The original building has a crenelated cornice on the parapet and a truncated corner with ashlar effect. The ground floor has timber six paned windows in the top half, and engaged ashlar effect pilasters. The first floor has sash windows with decorative stucco architraves. No 60 & 62 are similar to the adjoining right-sided structure of the Buffalo Club and have awnings that are probably not original.

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 c1910.
Third and fourth storey addition proposed 1984; initially rejected by Council, however later approved, as seen in photographs dated 2002.
In 2011 the owner D Monk advised that the interior had been gutted and rebuilt for the America's Cup.
Currently (2013), various retail outlets on ground floor.
