Architectural evidence of the Arts and Crafts movement is not very prevalent in a predominantly 19th century place such as Collingwood. But there are some examples. Collingwood United Masonic Temple was built in 1928/9 at 141 Gipps Street, Abbotsford, by Freemason architect, Bro. Harry Little and builders Morison Bros Pty Ltd. the heritage citation for it states: “The hipped terracotta tiled roof has projecting eaves, imparting an Arts and Crafts feel”.
