No. 1073 - Warrane Salvation Army Hall

Warrane is an eastern shore suburb of Hobart established by the Housing Department in the late 1940s and early 1950s. Warrane is an Aboriginal word meaning 'blue sky’. The name was adopted for postal purposes for the Montague Bay area before it was applied to its present locality in the 1940s.

The Salvation Army established a presence at Warrane in the late 1950s and a hall or “barracks” was built in the suburb. The hall was a simple vertical weatherboard building. In its later years the hall was used as the premises of a Salvation Army “Opportunity Shop”.

Additional information about this building and its history is most welcome 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.
