Description

The Masonic Club of Tasmania is one of a number of heritage buildings along Hobart’s Macquarie Street. It was originally built as Hutchins School between 1847 and 1849, and was designed by the Tasmanian-born architect William Archer. The bluestone building has sandstone trimmings and is built in the Gothic style, particularly the central tower and turret that feature parapets and crenellation. Another Gothic feature is the large pointed-arch window with tracery on the ground level.
