We attempt to pay homage to the history of the building and the town. Built in 1868 on the site of the original Post Office, the building now housing Chiltern Cottage and Indigo Suite has provided many services to Chiltern and community throughout her history. The parents of the current owner (*proudly fifth generation on Chiltern soil! ) made Chiltern Cottage their first home in 1948, and are delighted to see her lovingly restored and connected once again to the family , 66 years hence!
