No. 1125 - Scottsdale - Salvation Army Hall

Scottsdale is the largest town in north-east Tasmania. It is named after the Government Surveyor, James Scott, who explored the region in the 1850’s. The town was initially planned around Ellesmere but it developed about a kilometre south of the original site and was officially called Scottsdale after 1893.

The Salvation Army has had an active presence in Scottsdale since the late 1880s. The original Salvation Army ‘citadel’ was located on Victoria Street. This was replaced in the 1970s by a new building on Arthur Street. As a relatively new place of worship, there is very little information about the building’s establishment and more recent history. When more information becomes available this article will be updated.

Additional information about this church 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.
