A Brief History of the Weiler Building, 921 Government Street / 609 Broughton Street
The Weiler Building was built in 1899 by architect Thomas Sorby for the Weiler brothers, who used it as Weiler Brothers Ltd., one of Victoria’s first department stores.
It was used as a department store until the late 1940’s.
In the 1950’s this building was converted to offices on the upper floors with retail and commercial space on the main floor. It still retains that configuration.
