J E Brown Warehouse

Maryborough, Fraser Coast Area

J E Brown commenced business as a provisions and victuals merchant in 1857 in Richmond Street. In 1879 J E Brown had this two-storey brick warehouse built and was designed by a local architect James Buchanan. In later years, the premises were used for dances, balls, boxing tournaments, a restaurant, and currently houses the Maryborough Military and Colonial Museum.

This museum provides a testament to not only those heroes who fought in distant lands, but also those courageous and determined people who pioneered and progressed the Maryborough area for nearly two centuries.
