Polygon Type B - Building footprint
Details (Known As) Sharam's Cottage (Second)
Registered Name 'Sharam's' Cottage
Significance Sharam's Second Cottage is significant as an example of primitive vertical timber slab wall and timber shingle roof building technique used in the early pioneering days of the Colony. It has a simple form with most of the original external and internal fabric remaining and is closely associated with the First Cottage, which was always used as a kitchen facility. In this respect both Cottages are linked in significance. The Second Cottage forms an important part of a heritage area which includes several other buildings with related land holdings and landscape associated with early settlement on Wilson's Lane, Penola. As the site of the first settlement in Penola, the place is an example of a significant vernacular environment, examples of which are rapidly disappearing. (Condensed from 1984 Conservation Study)

While due care has been taken to ensure that the SA Heritage Places Database accurately reflects the South Australian Heritage Register and listings of Local Heritage Places in Development Plans, the State of South Australia does not accept liability for the use of the SA Heritage Database for any purpose. Users should consult the Department for Environment and Water - Heritage South Australia to confirm the listing of State Heritage Places and the relevant Development Plan for Local Heritage Places/Contributory Items.

In the majority of cases, the maps of State Heritage Places on this web site show the footprints of the most significant structures on a registered Place. However, sometimes they simply indicate the complete area of land comprising the Place. Work is proceeding to further refine the mapping of such places. It is also important to note that development control is not limited to the registered structures but extends to their setting and structures nearby (what is termed ‘development affecting’ a State Heritage Place). Hence it is vital that exact details of the listed place and implications for any proposed development be discussed with Heritage South Australia staff, as they cannot be deduced solely from the information on this web site. The inclusion of a place in the SA Heritage Register gives no right of public access. Permission to visit properties must be sought from the owners. The accuracy of the mapping of State Heritage Places is not guaranteed. Please contact Heritage SA ( https://www.environment.sa.gov.au/topics/heritage/sa-heritage-register) if you believe there is an error.
