Some History

During June, 1946, two brothers Selwyn and Clifford Davis purchased the West Blowering property known as 'Willowdene' from a Tumut hotelier Mr Wally Fowler.

One of the first things that they did was to build a small house near the northern end of the farm on the southern side of Deep Creek. This was occupied by Clifford and Eileen who in later years added a new section on the northern side.

In the mid 1950's a new house was built for Selwyn, Betty and family. It was situated in front of the original farm house. Shortly after a tennis court was constructed nearby on an old existing site. This received a lot of use and lead to a love of the game particularly by their eldest daughter Rhonda.
