This building began life in 1910 as the Alawoona General Store. Like most country stores in the early 1900s, the store owners also operated the Post Office and Post Master General's telephone exchange. The store offered a wide range of merchandise to cater for residents needs; anything from windmill parts to sewing needles were generally available. The building was moved to The Village in 1972.
