Frame 28.5 x 35.6cm
This historic Barrabool Sandstone building was originally built at Sutherlands Creek, moved stone by stone to Deakin University, Waurn Ponds Campus, in 1998.
The record on the Vic Heritage site declares “This church seems to have been moved…. (and) rebuilt at Deakin University in 1998.” Indeed, we can confirm it has moved!
A tweet on the Deakin Uni website declares this stone building was rebuild brick-by-brick…..
Verna Kirk was an enthusiastic local artist who used her talent to record the historic buildings around the Geelong district, 1970’s-80’s.
