The plaque at the former Dorakin Methodist Church site commemorates the pioneering families of the District.

James Hosken and his three sons developed their land into a wheat and wool farm called “Springfield”. James had deep religious beliefs, and was a lay preacher, and donated land on the corner of the property for a Methodist church, where many of the Dorakin pioneers worshipped, and James often preached.
