There are a number of historic houses at Port Arthur that have been restored and furnished to offer visitors an insight into daily life at the settlement. The Junior Medical Office’s House, built in 1848 in Georgian style, is one of five that make up Civil Officers Row stretching south from the church. The Medical Officer was responsible for providing care to civil and military personnel as well as to the convicts.
