Site Development of Inverell Hospital

Site Development of Inverell Hospital



There are serveral distinct phases of building activity observable on the site of Inverell Hospital; starting with the original 1877 hospital, through the 'new' 1935 hospital, to the wings added from the 1960s onward. 

We used architectural plans and related material obtained from the archives of both the NSW Department of Public Works and State Record Authority to map out a relative timeline of the construction of the various hospital and service buildings extant on the site.
