About 264 Kent Street
264 Kent Street is another great addition to the variety of historically significant buildings to be found in Maryborough on the Fraser Coast.
This building at 264 Kent Street was erected in 1875 and was occupied by J H Bliss, a watchmaker and jeweller. They specialised in supplying and repairing maritime chronometers, barometers, sextants and navigational instruments. This business served the busy port of Maryborough during the 1880s. Visitors to the port may even have availed of Bliss’ skills as a maker of artificial teeth.
