Allow time to examine the architecture of this turn of the century house, both inside and out. The dwelling was initially built for employees of long standing international company Dalgety and Co. The English merchants set up a post in the town of Port Hedland in 1903 and Dalgety House remained the manager’s residence until 1974.
