St Margaret’s, erected in the 1890’s, is remarkable for its beautiful squared blue stone walls. Dressings are all of brick. The pyramid like cap was fired in one piece, as well as the caps of the pillars and front porch.
The mosaic floor in the porch is said to have been brought to Adelaide from an excavation in Greece. Originally, the roof was made from slate, but later replaced by corrugated, galvanised iron. The original owner, Arthur Waterhouse was a son of T.G. Waterhouse, who owned Waterhouse Chambers, corner of King William and Rundle Street, Adelaide.
