Perry HouseThe City of Perth built Joseph Perry's original stone cottage in 1919 for the caretaker of the Endowment Lands, which included Bold Park.

Remnants of the original cottage, a well and hessian sack imprints on various limestone boulders in the area are reminders of those days.

Part of the original homestead provided construction material for the present Perry House, which today houses the Wildflower Society of Western Australia.

The Wildflower Society of Western Australian are a dedicated community group who play an important role in promoting and conserving Western Australian flora.
