Rural Fire Service Shed, Hill End, New Interpretation and Orientation Centre: Archaeological Assessment and Research Design

New South Wales National Parks and Wildlife Service commissioned Cosmos Archaeology to prepare an archaeological assessment and archaeological research design in relation to works at the Rural Fire Services Shed (RFSS), Hill End Historic Site. The RFSS is located in the main part of the village and is included within the State heritage listing. NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service were seeking approval from the Heritage Council to re-use the existing building as an Interpretation and Orientation Centre for the Hill End Historic Site. The assessment found that the property met local level significance for its archaeological potential in relation to former structures, the remnant c.1890s cottage retained within the RFSS shed and the partially standing c.1890s rear shed. It also assessed the proposed impact on the archaeological potential of the property to be minor. Cosmos Archaeology also undertook archaeological monitoring for this work, over two stages.
