This afternoon Hutchinson Legal celebrated its relocation to 10-12 Warrandyte Road, one of the oldest properties within Ringwood and which served as a former doctor’s clinic and later as part of Queensland Investment Corporation (QIC).

The building maintains its original facade and while the interior has been adapted for the requirements of a legal firm. Inside the there is extensive homage to the history of the area through photographs and a display of early typewriters and adding machines.

Ringwood has few historical buildings and it is important that we preserve the remaining heritage of the area. Like the Firehouse Cafe which remodelled the old Ringwood Fire Station, it is encouraging to see businesses like Hutchinson Legal respect and pay tribute to the history of Ringwood.
