York Post Office, York (1893)
The two grants received by the York Post Office have allowed for the completion of conservation works to the clock, clock room, and exterior stone and brickwork.
Built in 1893, the Post Office retains its original clock, which is one of the oldest public clocks in Western Australia. The clock stopped ticking more than 30 years ago. Now in the 21st century and with the help of a heritage grant, the clock has been restored back to working order and the weather beaten stone and brickwork have got a new lease of life.
The grand heritage building stands proud today as it did back in its glory day, but now with a reliable clock that proudly ticks on time.
In 2014, the York Post Office received a high commendation in the WA Heritage Awards in the Outstanding conservation of a non-residential place category.
