Old store wants makeover
STANDING sentinal on a prime corner of Mysia, the former general store was one of two big steps forward for the town in 1883.
Opening of the mudbrick and timber store and extension of the railway line through town to Boort happened within months in that year.
Now long closed, the store is in the market for a new owner wanting a major renovation project.
“The historic store has prime position on the road between Boort and Wedderburn and is ready for a real make-over,” said real estate agent Greg Fathers, of Property Plus, agents for sale of the property.
“The town and district once had a population of several hundred people who would buy supplies and provisions from the store.
“Along with the school just up the street, this typical country town store was at the heart of the local community.”
Greg said the four-bedroom house on 1.25 acres “needs substantial renovations although in recent times there have been works to the external roof and a power board upgrade”.
