Carcoar Hospital is one of the earliest colonial hospital buildings in Australia and holds a unique and important place in our history.
Built to the design of Architect Edward Gell, the foundation stone was laid in 1860 and the building was
completed and occupied by August, 1861. Funding was by community fundraising, with Government assistance. The cost was 2,400 pounds.
The hospital proudly served the community of Carcoar and district for nearly 150 years, and its legacy continues through the work of the Carcoar Hospital Museum and Restoration Committee. There have been alterations and additions to meet the needs of later eras, but the original building remains basically intact and is being slowly returned to Gell’s design.
Open Thursdays between 11am and 3pm
