My Town: Merv Lehmann, Robertstown

The Worlds End Highway is the last place you might expect to find a gentleman such as Robertstown’s Merv Lehmann, who has been serving customers at his general store for 71 years, always with a smile.

With a decorative roofline proudly displaying its construction date of 1912, Robertstown General Store seems as if it’s been transplanted out of history, into the 21st Century.

Much has changed in Robertstown over the past decades. During the 1950s, the town had a bustling main street with a railway, bank, butcher, deli, two garages, saddlery, school, bakery and even a blacksmith. But these have now gone.
