Featherston Butcher Shop

We named this building the ‘Featherston Butchers Shop’ as the word butcher can be clearly seen on the roof from the other side I sketched it from.

The building dates back to 1860, when it was originally built as a general store and family home by James Cox. It was sold in 1875 to William Toogood when it was modified/rebuilt to its current appearance, and it continued to operate as a general store into at least the 1920’s.
