The plaque commemorates the re-dedication of Bluestone Hall in 1997. 

In August 1856 a committee was appointed to construct a place of worship. In July 1857 the foundation stone for a church was laid by William Dale. The Bluestone Hall was opened in January 1858 and is now known as the Bluestone Hall. The Bluestone Hall served for a time as Holy Trinity Grammar School.

One of the people baptised during the period was well known Australian poet,  Andrew Barton (Banjo) Paterson. The Bluestone Hall was sold in 2017.
