Blind Creek


Stone memorial at hut site on Terrill’s farm near Murdering Hut Creek.

This photo of the memorial of where the Madden stabbed Morrison outside a hut on the edge of Blind Creek, can be found in “Big Camp Wahgunyah”, a book on the history of the Rutherglen District published in 1983, written by Muriel McGivern.
The Rutherglen Historical Society were instrumental in bringing this story to light and doing the research work to discover where this memorial should be placed. It is located on a private farm on the outskirts of Rutherglen and is not accessible to the public.
Muriel McGivern noted “The innocent ‘Blind Creek’ was thereafter dubbed ‘Murdering Hut Creek’ and remains so, but some locals squirm at the name.”
