Businesses in Point Pass thrived in its heyday - saddlers, carpenters, blacksmiths, upholsterers, a cheese and butter factory, and even a watchmaker. For all its historic buildings which still stand, Point Pass is now more of a dormitory town for Robertstown and Eudunda. One business which still continues is the Hotel, the doors of which were first opened in 1876. The original stone stables, with mellowed walls two feet thick, are part of the hotel complex.
Two surprises are in store for travellers between Eudunda and Point Pass. The first is the Lutheran Church, serving Point Pass and district, with itsgold painteddomed roof which dazzles motorists as they drive past. The second building of note is the Old Lutheran Boarding College, a complex of graceful proportions with all the rooms fitted out with antiques, each with its own unique theme.
