“Your Home Address or Your Business Address”
A little history
This appealing home was designed at the turn of the last century by the "highly skilled and renowned architect" from Grafton, FWC Schaeffer. Local builders Forrester and Grainger of Maclean built the substantial home in the 1920's of quality materials and their standard of craftsmanship is reflected at every turn in the building today. The land cost 200 Pounds and the house, 800 Pounds.
The property was sold by the Barnier Family to the Archinal Family where Sister Beatrice lived until her passing. In March 1994 the property was Sold at Auction on site by LJ Hooker Maclean, which included a chattels Auction on the grass verge. The price, $157,000.
The home was purchased by Maclean Shire Council to accommodate the increasing demand for Community Services. The provision of these services to the community continued in the building until Mid-2021.
