Your Cockburn home in architectural history

Your Cockburn home in architectural history

Do you live in a house with a bit of character?

Would you like to know more about when, why and how your house was built?

At your local Cockburn library, you can now find a whole stack of brochures regarding the architectural styles of houses built in the City of Cockburn between 1890 and 1980.

These brochures are really useful for anyone interested in preserving their heritage home, and they include some great starting points for any renovations or maintenance you might be considering.

Pop down to your closest branch (Spearwood, Success or Coolbellup)

Have a look at the brochures on display, take one home for yourself, or visit the Council’s Heritage in the City of Cockburn page for downloadable links to all the brochures.
