New Norfolk Buildings

A work in progress - documenting the history of the buildings in the shopping precinct.

Many thanks to Ruth Binnie and the volunteers at the New Norfolk Historical Information Centre, as well Damian Bester from the New Norfolk and Derwent Valley News, for sharing their extensive local knowledge and photos.

Thank you to Peg Lapham for her list of businesses and owners in the 1950s. I will be adding this information to the relevent buildings shortly

Also thank you to the many contributors to the Facebook groups New Norfolk Memories and New Norfolk Genealogy & Tasmania History.

If you have information or photos to share please send me a message.
