Overview
More
Set on a high bank overlooking the fertile flats of the Murray River, Old Blythewood stands as a testament to the industry, ingenuity and flexibility of the pioneering McLarty family. John and Mary Anne McLarty were amongst the first Europeans to settle in the Murray District around 1842. John was a tenant farmer and Mary Anne the local postmistress.

Originally dating from the latter half of the 19th century & serving as homestead & staging inn (hotel) for travellers heading south. Attractive setting on banks of Murray River & a classic design & construction building(s) of its period.
