BORAMBOLA CHURCH HALL. An iron building with an iron roof. Built 1924. The hall has had an unfortunate history. Mrs. Angel gave a site, which site was conveyed to the Church of England Property Trust, Diocese of Goulburn. Apparently it was found impossible to raise sufficient funds to build a church, and it was determined instead to build a hall. As the general public was invited to contribute, the building somewhat naturally came to he regarded as a public hall. The decision to build a hall was not unanimous, and the resulting misunderstanding as to its ownership and use has led to friction. Other centres worked are Humula and Oberne. At Humula a Presbyterian Church is used for services.- (Ref- The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954)(about) Previous issue Wednesday 7 April 1909).
