The site of 19-21 Draper St now contains a community parkette providing a place to garden, meet, relax and socialise. It’s here where the Draper Street Residents Association meet, to discuss issues affecting the street. The parkette is also the venue for the annual summer solstice party.
Originally the site of a second empire semi-detached house similar to 15-17 Draper St that was demolished in the early 1940’s the site was then home to a woodworking factory that suffered a fire and subsequent demolishing in the 1970’s.
