No. 907 - Hobart North - Newdegate Street Salvation Army Hall

The suburb of Hobart North, as the same suggests, is on the northern fringe of the city. It is a mixed residential and commercial area. The former “Hobart North Salvation Army Hall” is located at 41 Newdegate Street (previously Queen Street). The address now falls just with the boundary of West Hobart.

The Hall, which opened in 1922, was only used by the Salvation Army until the1940s when the North Hobart Corp combined with the New Town Corp. The hall was also used as a public venue and was frequently listed as a polling station during elections. In recent years the hall was the home of the North Hobart Bridge Club. The hall has since been converted into a house.

There is little published information available about the Hobart North Salvation Army Corp. Additional information is welcomed as all articles are continually updated. I can be contacted through this page or my Facebook page "Churches of Tasmania" which is linked here: Churches of Tasmania.

                        Although somewhat altered, the hall, now a house, is still recognisable.
