The Brothers Hotel Historic Stately Residence
The Christian Brothers Order had been on the property at 295 Rattray street since 1876 and the current
Stately residence was built in the early 1920's in the area known as the "Vatican" district.
At one time the huge residence housed up to 13 Brothers. In March 2005 there were only 4 remaining.
The Christian Brothers for most of its history has been associated with education. In Dunedin it has been involved in
Christian Brothers Junior and High schools, St Pauls, St Edmunds and in recent times at Kavanagh College.
