Farquhar Building Block

Farquhar Building Block

The buildings which occupy the four blocks between the Grand Parade and the Old Burying Ground reflect the evolution of Barrington Street as the City’s centre of commerce, from its early 19th century beginnings, to its blossoming in the late 19th and early-mid 20th century, its decline in the late 20th century and, currently, its potential for revitalization as the symbolic heart of the downtown.
