The nineteenth century Portable Iron Houses provide an insight into life in Emerald Hill, now known as South Melbourne, during the gold rush years. These remarkable examples of early property development are among the few prefabricated iron buildings remaining in the world. In 1855 South Melbourne had nearly 100 portable buildings, of which 399 Patterson House still stands on its original site. Abercrombie House and Bellhouse House were moved to the current site from North Melbourne and Fitzroy, respectively. Get an unparalleled insight into life during the gold rush when you visit one of these long lost relics of Australian history.
