Historical sale

One of Millicent’s largest colonial-era dwellings has recently come onto the open market.

For a period of its long history, the Olive Street stone house was the Millicent Catholic Presbytery.

According to late Millicent historian Joy Melano, the Catholic Church purchased the house in 1898 when Millicent was made a separate parish.

She said the first resident Catholic parish priest was Father McEvoy and he remained in Millicent for 16 years.

The house has long ago passed out of the ownership of the Catholic Church and is being sold via South East Property Sales and Management.
