Main Street Historic Walk – Site 17

Margaret River Butchers owned by Arthur Rodgers in 1937 but in 1953 built a new shop which is still standing. Later sons Neil (who died in 1982) and Nelson ran the business up to 1998 where the shop was renovated. The site is now occupied by a surf shop under Hillzeez and Elkamo Restaurant and Apartments Margaret River.
