New research into the colonial colonial house of lies has uncovered its “colonial” origins.
Key points:The house was used for a “drama and spectacle”The report found the home had “many colonial features”The house is “part of the fabric of the nation”It was built between 1820 and 1825The home had a “high standard of living”and “a sense of pride in the state of South Australia”The Colonial House of Lies is an extensive site in the south-east of the state, in a residential community called The Woodlands.
The report, published by the University of Adelaide, looked at the house as a part of a “cultural landscape” that was “partly built to the standards of the time”.
In particular, it highlighted the house’s “high standards of living”, including “a high standard of entertainment”.
The report also found that the house was “not only part of the cultural landscape but also a part in the fabric and heritage of South Australian society”.
The property was bought in 1820, and was constructed in a “style of construction” that the landowner “described as ‘colonial’.”
In 1821, it was the home of the “Prince of Wales”, Sir Henry, who had been given the property as a reward for his services to the Crown.
In 1822, the house became the home to the Governor General’s family, who were staying at the property, as well as the Governor’s wife, who was also staying there.
The property later became a theatre and the Governor was in charge of a group of officers and staff.
In the late 19th century, the property was used as a theatre by the Australian Warring Factions, who staged a series of war games there.
However, by the 1920s, the building was also home to a “significant proportion of the Australian population” and was being used as an entertainment venue.
The “colonial” character of the property is a common theme in historical research, with the House of lies “a key element in Australian history”The researchers found the house “was built with a ‘drama’ in mind, with many colonial features, including a high standard for living, a sense of national pride and a sense that this was a ’boutique’ home for the wealthy and powerful”.
However, the report’s authors said it was not a “purely colonial” structure.
The house’s architectural details “also suggest the home was constructed with an element of ‘colonialism’ and ‘colonialization’,” the researchers found.
The House of liends was constructed as a “boutiques” home in 1821 and is considered a “colonised” home, but “the evidence shows this was also a theatre”.
The researchers also found the House had “a ‘high standard’ of living”.
They found the “quality of the dwelling varied depending on its location”.
The “standard of living was also often high for the time”, with the average resident earning “more than $150 per week”.
The residents lived “in a comfortable and well-furnished home” and “in addition to a theatre, they also enjoyed a large outdoor space and a large range of amenities”.
“In addition, the occupants enjoyed ‘a sense’ of pride, such as ‘a feeling of pride for our country and the people who had built it’,” the report said.
The researchers described the “colony” as “a distinctive aspect of the local community”.
“While it was part of South Adelaide’s heritage, it has been lost and left in a state of disrepair,” the report found.
