This small farming community was once a thriving town with a school and general store. Many of the present farming families are descended from the pioneers of the district.
The District Hall was built in 1909 from locally fired clay bricks, with major extensions completed in 1936. The hall, which has been in continuous use for a century, has served as a school, sporting venue, polling place, cinema, and has hosted many dances, parties and other social functions.
Muradup War Memorial
The war memorial, built by the Football and Cricket Club, is unusual in as much that it was first unveiled in 1916, making it one of the first erected to honour those who had enlisted for World War I. Names of those who died in subsequent conflicts have also been added. The memorial is maintained by the locals to this day.
