This building is a prime example of a typical Settler’s Hut, occupied during the late 1800s and early 1900s by farmers. Huts like this were constructed of pine slabs and pug, a mixture of sand, clay and straw.
It was the first building to be constructed in The Village and represents the original hut, which once stood mere metres from where The Village Settler’s Hut now stands. The original Hut was once occupied by William Charles Loxton of whom the town was named after.
