Matraville Garden Village

Garden village planned by the State Government in 1917 under the Returned Soldiers' Holdings Act with tenancy restricted to war-injured returned soldiers, sailors and war widows. Voluntary donations of both labour and building materials helped erect 93 homes and provided for a memorial reserve, parkland and sites for public buildings and churches but the scheme suffered mismanagement and corruption and by the 1970s most had been demolished.
