Berrys Historic Gateway PropertyArguably the most iconic property in Berry is being offered for sale after being in the ownership of one family for almost a hundred years. The home started its life as the original Wilson Stores before the business moved to their current site within the village retail precinct. Then followed a time as the original Berry Hospital, before converting to a private residence and subsequently sold to the Rutledge family in 1920.

Other buildings around nbr 1 Pulman St have associated history going back to before 1873 which places this building as one of the original Berry structures.
The home is remembered by nearly every visitor and resident of Berry as the first property you see when entering the town. With the through traffic shortly to by-pass Berry, this residences character, history and potential will come forth as the gateway to the village of Berry.
