An 1860s house and shop, the home of many Willunga businesses, including that of Samuel Paine, who was the town's popular tailor for about 30 years until his death in 1899.

In the 1930s and 1940s it was Bart Hailstone’s butcher shop. From here he delivered meat by horse and cart to homes in the town.

Later it was Pulford’s newsagency, from 1973 to 2000.

The residence was then was extensively renovated to become the home of Off the Slate Gallery, an artist's cooperative which moved to 36 High Street in 2013.

Note the original slate roof.
