More than a shop
Steeped in time
Donated to the Trust in 1930 by York’s Frank Green alongside other city centre properties and Treasurer's House itself. The premises has had a number of owners over the years, each with their own story to tell. Not least of these was when it housed the draper's shop owned by former railway king, George Hudson. Travel even further back in time and the archway (which you can see at the front of the shop) marked one of four entrances to York’s sacred Minster precinct. With timbers dating back to the late 12th century it is the last remaining entrance left standing today.
Archive photographs show a National Trust information centre and shop in the building dated from 1969. That's more than fifty years of visitors and residents in York supporting the conservation charity when they choose to spend here.
