History

In 1901 the area was purchased by Richard Stanton and subdivided to create a garden suburb, in the hopes this would help to combat the spread of the bubonic plague by encouraging fresh air in the city. He named the area Haberfield after his family in England. The majority of houses in the suburb are protected by a heritage order, meaning that many of the original Victorian and Federation style buildings still remain, and any renovation work must follow strict guidelines to ensure that work is in keeping with the style of the architecture.
