Former Government House

@Mike Dickison

Former Government House, also known as Seddon House. The Government Buildings were designed by Government Architect, John Campbell primarily as a response to the request by the Lands and Survey Department for more and better space. Campbell also incorporated a new courthouse and space for other government departments. He was requested to make space for the Seddon statute. There is no record of his thoughts. This building is considered influential in establishing the Edwardian Baroque style for government buildings. Category I status.
