Hoover House

AU / Western Australia
Listed By: Screenwest
Location ID: #084-10151533
Hoover House is typical of the expansive style of home built for senior mine management in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The site was chosen in 1898 by the first general manager of the Sons of Gwalia mine, Herbert Hoover, and its construction commenced under his direction, although he was transferred to China before the building was finished. Hoover, who was later to become the 31st President of the United States of America, visited the area several times after returning to Australia from China. Hoover stayed in the house in 1902 with the then manager, R. Atwater. Hoover House was renovated in 2001 and has been managed by the Shire of Leonora since September 2010.
