Living at Mount Sophia Singapore

There aren't many hills left in the Central area of Singapore, but Mount Sophia is one of them. The area's prominence as a prime residential hub in the city center dates back to the 19th century. Mount Sophia has been home to the city's middle and upper classes from its earliest days. The urban revolution of the estate brought forth a wide variety of building kinds and styles, making the area a great depiction of Singapore's architectural history.

Mount Sophia was first referred to as Seligie Hill. Captain William Flint, brother-in-law of Singapore's founder Sir Stamford Raffles, was said to have been the first person to live on Mount Sophia. Mount Sophia was often referred to as "Flint's hill" during the early colonial period. After Lady Sophia Raffles, wife of Sir Stamford Raffles, the summit was rechristened Mount Sophia. The next year, Charles Robert Prinsep purchased Mount Sophia from the Sultan of Johor. He also owned Bukit Cawa, today known as Mount Emily, which is located directly to the west of Mount Sophia. Several homes have been constructed atop Mount Sophia throughout the years.

One of them was the magnificent Eu Villa, the ancestral home of Eu Tong Sen. Unfortunately, demolition of this structure has already begun. The slopes of Mount Sophia have served as permanent homes for a variety of communities throughout the years. The 1930s-era Sophia Flats and the 1958-era Church of Christ of Malaya both situated at the base of Mount Sophia. This marked the arrival of the middle class to Mount Sophia for the first time.

Mount Sophia was home to more than just people's homes, however; the slopes were also the location of several churches and universities. Some of these locations have historic landmarks designated to preserve their architectural legacy. The new town plan includes saving ancient buildings like the former Trinity College Chapel. The Methodist Girls' School, which operated from 1900 until 1933 on Short Street before relocating to its present-day location on Adis Road, is another example of a structure that has been kept through the years. On Selegie Road, you can still find the original Selegie Primary School building, which opened in 1887 and was the first high-rise school in Singapore. The main campus of St. Margaret's continues to serve the neighborhood. There is sufficient proof of a Jewish presence at Mount Sophia, particularly the Star of David prominently displayed on the outside of the David Elias building.

There are several historic structures in Mount Sophia that attest to the city's long and illustrious past, and which provide a glimpse into the city's socioeconomic and cultural development throughout the years. Present and future occupants of Mount Sophia should be quite proud to call this magnificent mansion home.
