The Beach Store

The Beach Store was the first substantial Second Settlement building. It was built in 1825 as the Commissariat Store but following flooding in 1834 it was adapted to a corn grinding mill.


The Beach Store

In 1841 it was converted to a guardhouse amid fears of convict rebellion. During the early Third Settlement it was converted to a customs shed and coffin room. Today it is a museum displaying the natural history of Norfolk, the archaeology of Kingston and the history of Norfolk Island.
