What is Significant?

How is it Significant?

The Dover Road and John Street Heritage Precinct is of local historic and aesthetic significance to the City of Hobsons Bay.

Why is it Significant?

Historically, it is significant for its ability to illustrate the private residential subdivision that occurred in the area to the north of Ferguson Street during the mid to late nineteenth century. The former Oddfellows Hotel illustrates how commercial uses were situated throughout residential areas prior to changes to licensing laws and the advent of motorised transport. (AHC criteria A4 and D2)

Aesthetically, it is significant as a relatively intact example of a late nineteenth and early twentieth century residential area, which predominantly comprises detached weatherboard single storey cottages. The former Oddfellows Hotel is a rare surviving example of a single storey weatherboard hotel that illustrates its former commercial role by its construction on the corner street boundaries. (AHC criteria B2, E1 and F1)

On this basis, the following properties contribute to the significance of this precinct:

- Dover Road 33, 35, 36, 38, 42 and 44

- John Street (odd) 3, 5, 7, 13-17 29-37 (even) 4-10, 16, 18 and 24-32 (inclusive)
