History[edit]

Wheelock House[1] was built on the site where once stood three previous generations of Jardine House, the headquarters of Jardine, Matheson & Co. The first Jardine House was probably built around 1841 after Jardine's successful bid for its lots on The Praya Central. In 1908, the second Jardine House was built.[2] It was rebuilt in around 1956, and redeveloped in the early 1970s as Wheelock House.
