Buildings with a rich history

All of the buildings share a rich heritage and hold cultural significance in the history of Singapore.

Built in 1843, the Cathedral of Good Shepherd is the oldest Catholic Church in Singapore.

The Cathay was the tallest building in Singapore and Southeast Asia when it opened in 1939.

In addition to being Singapore's oldest fire station, the Central Fire Station is a symbol of how early volunteer firefighting squads have evolved into today's modern civil defence force.
