Battery Room
This building was built about 1880 as sleeping quarters for the linesmen. The men later moved into the police house when it was vacated in 1886. At the same time, the batteries were relocated from the Barracks to this building.

The building originally had two rooms (as detailed from floor plan in 1900). The building was converted to a schoolroom when the telegraph station became an Aboriginal children’s home in 1932.
