Ross Memorial Church

The West Perth Presbyterian Church was first established in Havelock Street in 1898.  However, as the congregation swelled during the gold boom years of the 1890s and early 1900s, it was found to be too small.  The Ross Memorial Church was built during the First World War (1914 - 18), largely as a result of the efforts of the Reverend Ross, who died only a few months after its completion in 1917.
