Gannon House & Shop

Location: 45-47 Argyle Street, The Rocks, NSW 2000

Constructed: 1839-1840

The buildings, that house the Gannon House Gallery, are important as evidence of the early architectural development of The Rocks district and No.45, in particular, is a valuable and significantly complete residence of that period, retaining most of its original internal fabric and detail. They both have architectural and historic importance for their design qualities, construction and associations and make a significant individual contribution to the rich townscape of The Rocks.
