Gladstone House, corner Langhorne and Foster Streets, Dandenong.

Gladstone House hydropathic hospital on the corner of Langhorne and Foster streets Dandenong opened in 1896, working on the theory of no medicine or operations.

Elizabeth Mary Orgill (nee Gladstone) operated Gladstone House until 1911, along with another hydropathic hospital (Birthwood) on Cheltenham road. She was the daughter of William Gladstone (Nephew of William Ewart Gladstone, UK prime minister in 1874).

Gladstone Road in Dandenong is named after her family, who owned and occupied a farming paddock in the area on former Police Paddock ground, the Police reserve having earlier been reduced back to Stud Road.
