This beautiful little sand-stone church is on the property ‘Havilah’ and is set back from the roadside between Mudgee and the settlement of Lue, in Central Western NSW
The church was erected in 1905 by Henry Hunter White of ‘Havilah’, in memory of his father Henry Charles White, who had bought Havilah from the original owner in 1881. The church was gifted to the Anglican Church in 1908.
The property received its name after a visiting clergyman discovered specks of gold and, citing from Genesis, referred to it as the ‘land of Havilah’, it became famous for breeding a fine strain of merino sheep.
