Historical information

The age of the bluestone quarry at Mernda is uncertain, it is believed to date from the early times of settlement in the area, in the mid 19th century. Nearby bluestone buildings such as Mayfield Presbyterian Church and the butter factory at Mayfield may have been sourced from here. Both of these buildings were constructed by Moses Thomas, a very early settler and previous owner of this land.
