Thomas Little Hall.

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Originally Church of the Immaculate Conception. Built due to the generosity of Irish immigrant Thomas Little, who donated land and materials with which to build a church and monastery. The foundation stone was laid on 25th March 1854 by Spanish pioneer missionary Bishop Salvado of New Norcia. This was the first country Catholic church to be built outside of Perth, W.A.'s capital. In use as a church until 1938, when the nearby new church became the consecrated district Catholic church. The hall was restored in 1979, dedicated and named after its original benefactor.

These churches are so photogenic.. I may not frequent them but I do appreciate the effort in the design, building & upkeep of them...

I'm on your wavelength there GG. My religeous days are long gone but I still love the artistry of churches. Well, mostly. Thanks for the Lk..

  • A classic historic church. Considering the year it was quite an accomplishment.

Wow that is an oldtimer, glad to see it kept up! With the buttresses along side it should stand forever. LIKE Cheers, Carter

Hi Jockfrom the group A1-Unique Australia. As with so many little churches, you have to admire them. Often build with limited funds and still so beautifully finished. L. Regards Ebi

It's a beauty Jock! Although you, GG & I should probably not enter at the same time, if you get my drift :-)))))

Thank you all for the kind comments and Lks. It is a robust little building. And a church never got a better benefactor. The guy supplied the land and all the materials for the project, in kind.

Looks like a neat old building. I'm not very religious myself, but I sure love the old bits of architecture religions produce.

jockswa on February 22, 2013

I'm with you there Spencer. The only churches that don't really throw my switch are the modern ultra simple designs. This one really captures my imagination even with its old-time simplicity.
