A rural locality between Brungle and Darbalara. A small village was laid gazetted for a general cemetery, Roman Catholic Church and parsonage. The villlage and parsonage did not eventuate, but a fine brick church was built and names St Dennis, Wagragobilly.
With declining attendance, the church closed. Some years ago the land was sold and subsequently the near derelict building turned into a private residence.
However, the cemetery at the rear is still used as a public cemetery. - (Ref- Small Cemeteries and Isolated Graves of the Tumut District.Tumut Family History Group Inc - 1999.)
