Contextual Information

After the Bolgart Estate was established in 1906 and with the railway through from Toodyay in 1909, a new community was established in the Wattening area.
The main families in the area were the Camerers and the Ludemans. The Wattening settlers soon required mail and educational services. In 1912 the timber Temperance Hall was constructed and was used as a school, church and community meeting place. Town picnics were a popular event. The materials from this demolished hall were used to build the Bolgart Hall.
