From Victorian homes to ultramodern apartment blocks, explore the history of Maitland through its architecture.
The city of Maitland’s architectural landscape has changed seemingly with each decade. The orange groves of the early 1900s gave way to new businesses and homes, springing up to support the families moving to the area in droves. In the Maitland Historical Museum, Building Maitland examines the architectural evolution that the city has undergone in the last century. From Victorian houses, to mid-century modern shopping plazas, to ultra-modern apartment buildings, the story of the city’s growth can be told by the buildings of each era.
