In 1901 the original cottage was demolished and Peppercorn Cottage was designed and built as an example of the Federation Bungalow style of limestone and iron architecture. The first occupant was James Reynolds, an iron monger. The Fremantle Society classifies the cottage as a building which should be preserved because of its contribution to the unique character of Fremantle as it is a typical workers cottage. ABOUT FREMANTLE Fremantle is recognised as the best preserved 19th Century seaport in the world. Over 150 buildings in the port city are classified by the National Trust, These include: The Round House which was built in 1831 & is the oldest public building in W.A, The Esplanade Hotel which was built in 1890s and the Fremantle Prison which was built by convict labour in the 1850s. Fremantle was establlished in 1829 as a port for the fledgling Swan River Colony and was the major city in Western Australia for much of its early history. Fremantle became a city in its own right by 1929, and survived the building demolitions of the 1890s and the 1960s. The city emerged in 1987 when it was the host city for the Americas Cup sailing challenge, as a city rich in heritage and character. ?Freo? as it is also known to the locals, is home to a 500-strong fishing fleet and a vast number of yachts and pleasure craft. Two significant historical replica ships were built here: The HMS Endeavour and the Duyfken which was the first Dutch vessel to chart the Australian coastline in 1666.
