Astroea, 26 Church Street

Church Street marks the entrance to the peninsula of Hunters Hill now separated from Figtree by a main road system. Until the 1960s there were houses along both sides of Church Street, many of them stone. The building of the expressway accelerated change in this area, houses were subsequently demolished (or moved, see 6 Lot Lane) and home units of varying styles were built. This change alarmed residents and, with other factors, led to the formation of the Hunters Hill Trust in 1968.
