History of our Building

McKenziesThe known history of the building housing the visitor centre goes back to the early 1900's.  After a run of bad luck, Alexander McKenzie left his farm, just a mile from Minlaton, in the hands of his sons and moved into the town. He opened a fuel and fodder store in Main Street, with a two-storied granary behind. The upstairs loft allowed hay and chaff to be loaded directly onto wagons drawn up below. The business included a saddlery and provided employment for Mr. McKenzie's sons and several other men.

In later years, as saddlery declined as an enterprise, the firm engaged in upholstery, shoe and boot manufacture and repair. The establishment became the district's main shoe store.

In the 1930s, a café and delicatessen in the rear two-storied part of the building was the centre of Minlaton's night life.YorkePeninsulaVisitorCentre

EldersIn the 1950s, Elder Smith and Company Limited bought the building and renovated the premises.

They remained, as Elders Goldsborough Mort and then Elders, until Harvest Corner Information and Craft refitted the building and moved from their previous location further down the Main Street on 15th May 2002.

Today you can enjoy the ambience of an historic building filled with quality local art, craft and produce and benefit from visitor information provided by locals.
