Name origin

Hackham West is named for the area west of Hackham, which is thought to be named after a place in Gloucestershire, England.

Settlement history

Settlement of the area dates from the 1850s, with the township surveyed in 1856. Land was used mainly for farming, particularly cereal crops. Significant development did not occur until the post-war years. Rapid growth took place in the 1960s and 1970s, as a southern extension of the Morphett Vale area. The population gradually declined from the early 1990s, a result of little change in dwelling stock and a decline in dwelling occupancy rates and the average number of persons living in each dwelling.
