BUILDING HISTORY

BUILDING HISTORY

The building at 289 Comur st. in Yass was built in 1936 and officially opened in 1937 as the Hume Service Station. It was one of the first service stations between Melbourne and Sydney and the first all night service station. Prior to the station having been built, the property was used as a brick quarry and many older buildings in Yass would have sourced their bricks from here.

Caltex purchased the building in 1959 and did a modern renovation in 1960. As part of that renovation, they demolished the Art Deco façade at the front of the building, replacing it with a large metal awning. This was removed in early 2014 when the petrol tanks were also removed and replaced with a replica of the façade as per the original architectural plans.

The property was owned by one family, passed through the generations, until purchased in 2013 by Michaela and Chris Pothan who set about bringing the building back to its former glory. The building has been renovated inside and out to today's standards with a nod to its Art Deco roots.
