Raymont's store was built in 1885 and in 2001 was being used as a furniture shop. Thomas Percival Raymont built the store to sell groceries and produce. It was in operation for 65 years and was later managed by Thomas' son, Bill. Thomas and his wife Eliza lived in a house next to the store and there raised eight children, five dying in infancy. Up until the early 1900s the store was an agent for the supply of rations to the Aborigines who lived in Enoggera. From 1888 the store included the Post Office for the area.
