Mingenew Pioneer MemorialPrint Page Print this page

Cairn dedicated to early pioneers.

The first settlers (Edward Hamersley and Samuel Pole Phillips) took up leases in 1850 but the area was to remain sparsely populated for quite some time. Township lots were privately sub-divided in 1891 by Samuel James Phillips (one source says 1890) and in 1906 adjacent land was sub-divided by the government. A year later the private land was also incorporated into the townsite.
