Businesses in Point Pass thrived in it’s heyday – saddlers, carpenters, blacksmiths, upholsterers, cheese and butter factory, even a watchmaker. One business that continues today is the local hotel, whose doors were opened in 1876. The original stone stables, with mellow walls two feet thick are part of the complex.
Two surprises for travellers between Eudunda and Point Pass, are the Lutheran Church with it’s gold painted domed roof, and the old Lutheran Boarding College, until recently a B&B accommodation.
