Windsor School of Arts building - 100 years old

By JOL Admin | 28 June 2010

The Windsor School of Arts was established in 1887 to promote cultural pursuits in the area, with various temporary premises used until a dedicated building could be built.  A simple timber building to house the group was begun in 1910, the builder being a Mr. Plaistow and the architect, Mark Taylor.  It contained a library and gymnasium and over its life has been used by a wide range of community groups.

Road expansion is again changing the area around this familiar Brisbane building, with the construction of the new Northern busway.
