Nellie James

Nellie James – a popular local gourmet-to-go and catering business — occupies this gable-fronted structure popular in the 19th century. Built of timber with board-and-batten siding, this building was originally a barn. But, over the years, it has been used for commercial — including a laundry in 1928 — and retail. Today, Nellie James provides chef-driven meals made of locally sourced, seasonal ingredients.
