Historical notes: Built 1859 as two shops - a saddler and Dispatch (newspaper) office called the Albert Buildings. McKellar Street was the former main street of Braidwood. Converted to a steam driven flour mill in the 1860s, proprietors Hendricks and Jacobs(?). Originally two storeys and an attic and gable ended roof. Used this century as a wattle bark store.

Recommended management:

Commercial uses, however location is away from main street.
