at Susannah Place Museum

Located in the heart of The Rocks, Susannah Place is a rare surviving example of a simple working-class terrace. Built in 1844, by Irish immigrants and continuously occupied until 1990 this typically English terrace was home to over 100 different families. The museum tells the stories of the often overlooked lives of working class people and the neighbourhood in which they lived, played, worked and struggled. The four houses survived largely unchanged through the slum clearances of the early 20th century and the area’s redevelopment in the 1970s. Ongoing research, photographs from public and private collections, oral history interviews and the surviving layers in each of the houses has allowed the museum to re-create the lives of individual families of the 19th and 20th centuries. The Youngein family run corner store of 1915 has been faithfully re-created and sells goods from the era.
