A monument commemorates the 150th anniversary of the proclamation of Binda as a village, and past and present residents of Binda and district.

Binda is the oldest settlement in the area. Police were stationed at Binda in 1840 due to the number of bushrangers in the area. They set up a residence, lock-up and horse paddocks on the townsite.  The village was gazetted in 1851 and one of NSW's earliest national schools opened here in that year. Until the 1880s it was the main administrative centre of the district. The shire's first post office, government school, courthouse and police station were set up here.
