Anthony Hemingway (RBA Architectural Historian) has recently revisited the Strathbogie Shire for the third round of Stage 2 of the Strathbogie Shire Heritage Study. Some interesting sites which have been investigated include the Mt Hut (or Mountain Hutt) Weir constructed c1890 set in bushland to the south east of the shire, shown below. The unusual capping to the weir is of rough dressed stone. The weir is still in use, though only .5km downstream from the more substantial GA Waterhouse reservoir.

Two homesteads include Honeysuckle Station near Violet Town (below). The original timber dwelling dates to 1874 and a later red brick addition to the rear, is from the early 20th century.

The original timber shingles to the roof of the barn are still evident at Baldavin Park near Strathbogie, below, constructed c.late 19th century.
