Grand Town Home

Hargate was designed and built as a grand townhome by Mr Joseph Humphreys in 1900, for his wife Annie and their five children.

Joseph was the architect, building foreman and silent partner of Tasmanias' most renowned builders of the time, J & T Gunn.       Upon his retirement Joseph became a Launceston City Councillor.

Subsequent generations of the Humphreys' family still live in Launceston today.
