Gordon, school

The former Gordon Public School is located along the Pacific Highway in the northern suburb of Gordon. This sandstone building was designed by George Mansfield in the Gothic Revival architectural style and constructed in 1878, with a second block added in 1912. The school closed in 1989 and this building now houses a small museum known as the Headmaster’s Office Museum, the Ku-ring-gai Historical Society Research Centre and the Gordon Library Meeting Rooms.


  1. It is a beautiful building. Good that it's seeing new uses.

  2. A very warm appearance of the facade! For sure was a lovely place to receive education.
    A happy Spring!

  3. Beautiful building juxtaposed against the puffy clouds of the sky ~

    Happy Weekend coming to you ~ ^_^

  4. Thanks for visiting Ku-ring-gai Historical Society. I've shared your link on our blog.

  5. I love the clean details of the gables. Much of the Gothic style features very heavy ornamentation, but this is clean simple and very attractive. Thanks for sharing with us.

  6. Nice design! I love the sandstone color too.
