1815 – OLD GOVERNMENT HOUSE PARRAMATTA

FROM  WIKIPEDIA Starting in 1815, Governor Lachlan Macquarie and Mrs Macquarie added extensively to Hunter’s structure and by 1818 their principal residence had acquired the appearance which it retains today (the building’s Palladian style extensions were designed by Macquarie’s aide, Lieutenant John Watts).
