Keyham is a portable residencial structure made of Swiss wood and constructed in Germany that was created in the early 1850s during the Victorian Gold Rush era in response to Geelong’s housing crisis. The precise year of construction is uncertain. Keyham was once a six-room structure with a kitchen and servant’s quarters. It was also suggested that the original layout included a possibly independent

storehouse. The prefabricated home was built by the front portion of the existing structure, whose initial shape is unknown. Keyham’s pieces were stencilled or stamped with numbers, and the nails used in the construction were handcrafted.
