The Early Settlers Hut - Delegate
This historic building is of unique local significance and has associations going back to the earliest establishment of European settlement in the colony.
The building is of the type erected by squatters in the mid-1840s when they were first given some form of permanent occupancy and this hut undoubtedly dates from this period.
Historical information points to the hut being used originally as a manager's residence (the first manager being Mr Donald Ross). When first constructed, the hut 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 Early Settlers Hut is located one kilometre south-west of the township of Delegate, adjacent to the Bonang Highway and is open every day.
