124 Lonsdale Street

The date of construction is not known but on stylistic and other grounds it appears to date from the turn of the century. The hall has associations with Monivae College, the major Catholic school in Hamilton. It is substantially intact and in good condition. With its severely formal planting it makes a strong and individual contribution to the streetscape
