Main Street Historic Walk – Site 32

From 1938/9 this was the residence of Bruce and Mabel Boulter until 1961/2 when it was bought by a Fred DuPlessis who operated a bootmakers business here. In 1976 Laurie and Dianne Praed bought it for $23,000 and operated a accountancy business. They sold in 2000 to a lawyer and that site is now the shopping mall containing the Commonwealth Bank and Dale Alcock as some of its tenants.
