East Victoria Park

East Victoria Park is simply a name for an area being east of Victoria Park, the name therefore is mostly descriptive. Victoria Park is obviously named after Queen Victoria. In the late 1800's an estate called Bickford was established in this area and was described then as being Victoria Park East. The suburb is bounded by Kent Street in the north, the Armadale railway in the east, and Hill View Terrace and Jarrah Road in the west and south

East Victoria Park - Edward Millen House

This impressive structure was erected as the Rotunda Maternity Hospital in 1912. Elizabeth Baillee (Nurse, Midwife) caused the construction. In 1919 Bailee was forced to hand over the hospital to the state to house Spanish Influenza epidemic patients. In 1920 it was renamed Edward Millen House after a politician and was used as a WWI veterans' repatriation hospital until 1982. In 1982 the building became the Hillview (psychiatric) Hospital for residential young people. The Town of Victoria Park took over the premises in 2003. Seems news now afoot is to rename back to Baillie who was the building's original driving force. So much more appropriate. April 2015. Photos Ref: EVPK006
