This is the beautiful blue stone church on King William St.
The Wesleyan School is the first documented use of bluestone in Fitzroy. Because it is hard to work bluestone is usually only used for foundations. The Wesleyan School was built in 1849 and is now known to have been designed by George Wharton, though previously it was attributed to James Webb. It is believed that the church was to be rendered (as most did not find bluestone to be attractive). (South Fitzroy Conservation Study 1979, p.11).
The church was demolished in the late 60’s early 70’s for the Housing Commission (South Fitzroy Conservation Study 1979, p.11).
