"Halcyon" at 46 Hawthorne Road, Hawthorne
"Halcyon" is a 3 level Mediterranean-style villa located on a rise at 46 Hawthorne Road, Hawthorne giving residents an unobstructed view of New Farm Park. "Halcyon" was commandeered and used by Americans Officers during World War 2.
In November 2000 "Halcyon" was owned by well-known restaurant owner Michael Platsis who bought it in 1987. It was originally built by Vic Jensen in 1924. He owned the Vic Jensen shoe business.

Can someone tell me what did the American Officers used "Halcyon" for?
Was it just as accommodation?
