Jacob's Store was an old building on the corner of where five roads met.
It was known as Jacob's store in 1874. The store came first ,and then the township grew around the store!
Edward Jacob's became Yorketown's first mayor in 1879.
The Yorke Hotel was nicely painted in white and blue.
This Hotel dates 1876, and is a good example of the prosperity which was common when the new wheatbelt towns were established.
It is now a National Trust building and is located at 1 Warooka road, Yorketown.
The Melville Hotel/Motel, is another lovely Hotel, this time a double story built out of local stone with lots of lovely lacework on its verandahs. The Hotel was established in 1872, and is now a National Trust building.
Located at 1 Minlaton Road, Yorketown.
Want to see a "BIG" windmill, then make your way past the Melville Hotel and you will find a windmill manufactured by William Riddle, approx 10ft in size. It had a solid wooden wheel and slatted wooden tail.
By the Windmill is an information sign.
A Sunday in Yorketown, and where to go for Dinner for a reasonable price?
We found Danni's Diner, well, it was the only shop open on a Sunday. As it turned out, the meals were reasonably priced, and the people behind the counter were lovely.
We ordered fish, chips and salad, which was 2 pieces of beautifully cooked fish, chips and salad.
We were very happy with the meal and service and would happily return here.
