Historic Jehovah's Witness Kingdom Hall in Cooktown.

The local Jehovah's Witnesses in Cooktown were looking for a place to meet in and the rumour goes the local shire offered them the old rundown hospital for a carton of beer ..

Not sure how true that story is but they got in a heap of volunteers , dismantled it and put it in a new location- and I guess shared the carton of beer!!

Whatever, it is a stunning looking building fully restored to it's 19th century glory -- and it's open for tours. Posted by Picasa
