Mark Gray junior built the hut and adjacent cow yards in the early 1900s, milking cows and taking the cream to Melrose, at least 10 miles away. The hut was burnt down in a bushfire in 1988. The area was known as the race course, because local lads secretly trained their horses here for the picnic races. The current hut was built around the ruins of the original hut.
