The Red House Door Post & The Perth Town Crier’s News


In the Miltary Settlement at Perth there were two locations where a Crier could post an important notice. The first was the door of the Settlement Office, the second was on the post at the "Red House", an important gathering place (that has almost always been painted white!) You can access The Red House Door Post by clicking here.

As part of The Red House Door Post you will also find links to Perth, other Town Criers and Town Crier Guilds.
