This is a fine building of red brick, set off with white stone columns of Corinthian design, while in the grounds in front there is a handsome statue of Queen Victoria, similar to the one at Cape Town, which was subscribed for as a memorial of Her Majesty's Jubilee. The buildings were finished some six years ago, and cost all in about £25,000.
