Hall Family Facade Print Page
Public Convenience commemorates the site of the Hall Family home.
The first block of land to be purchased in Haydonton was purchased by ex-convict Benjamin Hall, the father of one of Australia`s best-known bushrangers, Ben Hall. The family`s original slab cottage (1842), where Ben Hall passed much of his early childhood, was located opposite Bridge House, approximately on the corner of Mayne St and Adelaide St. The family moved temporarily to the Lachlan district in the late 1840s. Ben`s parents and some of the children returned to Murrurundi in the early 1850s.
