Former French Mission Building
Situated next to St. John's Cathedral , the Former French Mission Building was built by order of the first Governor of Hong Kong, Sir Henry Pottinger. The granite and red brick structure was completed between 1842-1843, making it one of Hong Kong's oldest surviving colonial buildings. Acquired by the French Mission in 1915, it was finally sold back to the Hong Kong Government in 1953. Nowadays the neo-classically styled building is used as the Hong Kong Court of Final Appeal and has been declared a monument.
