Called 'Rainworth Fort' and built in 1862. There is dispute concerning this homestead. It appears to be more a store house than a dwelling. One story is that it was the site of a massacre by the local Aborigines of the homestead family, however others conjecture that this is confused with another massacre that took place of the Wills family North of the Minerva Hills at Cullin-la-ringo when 19 people were killed, the largest massacre of Europeans on record.
