"Mansions of Glenelg" is a web and GPS smartphone tour created with valuable assistance from the Holdfast Bay History Centre. You'll see and learn about some of Glenelg's most significant and beautiful heritage listed buildings.
Included on the tour are Seafield Tower (1876), Stormont (1886), Albert Hall (1878), Glenara (1873), Restormel (1881), Colonna (1881), Soward's Villa (1887), Waterworth (1885), Hindmarsh House (1874), Alexandra Terrace (1878), and other more recent historic buildings.
Built in Glenelg South Australia in 1878, Albert Hall is a beautiful example of a fully restored Victorian era beachfront mansion. Decorative cast iron lacework, cast iron veranda supports and richly decorated Victorian woodwork make Albert Hall a standout residence.
