Point Pass

Point Pass

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.

Travelers between Eudunda and Point Pass, may well notice the Lutheran Church with it’s gold painted domed roof, and the old Lutheran Boarding College, at one time it was B&B accommodation.

Stop at Point Pass, view the old buildings and check out the pioneer memorial at the Southern edge of the town.
