Physical Description

All physical evidence removed


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.
Between 1908 and 1915 Lot pt. 1064 was vacant and owned by John Nugent. In 1916-17 ownership passed to M.F. Farrington, and a wood and iron cottage, to the value of £180, was erected on the lot in 1917. The first occupier of the cottage (then known as No. 577) was Edwin or Edward James Harrison.
On 1 September 1969 an application (No. 5658) was submitted to Council by Mr F. Da Luz Silva for a garage to be erected on the lot. According to Building Department records this work was completed by 13 August 1970.
House, 323 High Street was included on the Fremantle Municipal Heritage Inventory when it was first adopted in 18 September 2000 and the Heritage List on 8 March 2007. The Statement of Significance for the place was: House, 323 High Street, is a single storey brick and tile house dating from the 1910s. The place has aesthetic value for its contribution to the streetscape and the surrounding area. It is representative of the typical building stock located within the residential areas of Fremantle. It is historically significant as a representation of typical workers' houses in the Fremantle area.

In 2019 houses, 286, 288, 315, 319, 321, 323, 325 & 327 High Street, Fremantle were demolished as part of High Street upgrade.
