This historic building is not only of unique local significance, but has associations going back to the earliest establishment of European settlement in the colony.
This building is of the type erected on the squattages in the mid 1840s when the squatters were first given some form of permanent occupancy and this hut undoubtedly dates from this period.
Historical facts point to the hut being used originally as a Managers residence (the first manager being Mr Donald Ross). The hut when it was first constructed was not as large as it is today.
The hut has been restored using timbers obtained locally and worked with tools such as adzes and broad axes by local craftsmen practising skills of a bygone era.
The Hut is located one kilometre southwest of the township of Delegate, adjacent to the Bonang Highway and is open everyday.Visit Website
