Settlement history

Settlement of the area dates from the mid 1800s. Growth took place in the 1880s and 1890s, accompanied by the establishment of industries. Expansion continued during the early 1900s, aided by the opening of the railway line. A flour mill was built in 1930, operating until 2005. Growth continued during the post-war period. The population declined slightly during the 1990s, and then increased between 2001 and 2006, a result of new dwellings being added to the area.
