Highbury, also known as Highbury Hall, now a Grade II* listed building, was commissioned as his Birmingham residence by Joseph Chamberlain in 1878, two years after he became Member of Parliament for Birmingham. It received its name from the Highbury area of London, where Chamberlain lived as a child. The architect was John Henry Chamberlain (no relation) who incorporated much terracotta decoration.
Joseph Chamberlain lived in Highbury from 1880 until his death in 1914. During World War I, it was used as a hospital annex and home for disabled soldiers. It was given to trustees in 1919 by his elder son and it then passed to Corporation of Birmingham in 1932, when it was used as a home for elderly women. In 1984, it was restored by Birmingham City Council and is now used as a conference centre and occasional restaurant. The living rooms and bedrooms are open to viewing by clients.
