Once a haunted mansion

This beautiful arched verandah is of a historical building in High Street which has been restored in 2001 as a community complex. Built in 1891, it had been different things to local people through the past 110 years, such as nurses' quarters, mental hospital, hiding place for drug addicts and haunted mansion (to curious teenagers).

Why haunted mansion? Check out these photos of the building before and after restoration and at night time. If you are really interested, here's more information on its history.

I like the colour combination of the warm wood/brick, combined with the green.

It looks really nice know it has been restored. I can see why people thought of it as a haunted mansion.

A really nice image with great perspective. It's a lovely building, looks much better now. A sidewalk cafe would be perfect.
