Rusten House Arts Centre

  • Project typeCapital Works
  • Project value$250,000

Rusten House was built in 1861 and is one of Queanbeyan's most significant properties. Originally built to replace the Benevolent Asylum to serve the more affluent community, by the early twentieth century Rusten House became a community hospital, then a nurses' dormitory during the 1930s. In 1991 it was renamed as Rusten House after the hospital's first matron Mary Rusten.

In November 2016 the NSW Government gave funding of $250,000 for the upgrade and this amount will be matched by Council.

The project includes:

  • re-wiring
  • re-plumbing
  • new bathroom
  • new kitchen
  • fit out including painting and flooring
