BLOCKHOUSE TRADING COMPANY - our building
The Blockhouse Trading Company store has been owned by Peter for over 30 years. The original building from a century ago was a quarter of the size it is now. The other half of the lower level was originally attached to the Games store across the street and was a Post Office. Our shop counter comes from there, as do the built in shelves. The second level was built later under ownership of the Ernst family.
Since Peter has owned the building, he has skillfully undertaken renovations and also ran it as a shoe repair and a kayak shop. It has been used for storage for many years and is now enjoying its renaissance by celebrating its past.
