Statement of significance:

St John’s Orphanage building [now privately owned] designed by E.C.Manfred is highly significant regionally for its role as a former boy’s institution run under the auspices of the Catholic Church by the Sisters of Mercy. The social and community values of the orphanage are recognised, particularly for the work of the late Sr. Genevieve Cummins.
The building was damaged by fire in November 2015. It is yet to be rebuilt or restored.
