Old Jarrahdene Mill site is in a central location between Margaret River and Augusta
The site was originally a timber mill belonging to M.C. Davies dating back to the late 1800s.
Remnants of the old mill, closed in 1913, can still be seen.
The Jarrahdene Mill was a large timber mill that formed part of the Davies timber industry, which dominated much of the second wave of settlement in the shire. As there are not many built sites left from the Davies timber era, what does remain is therefore significant, even if it is only evidence of the site, as in the case of the Jarrahdene mill. This mill, as with all others, was the centre of the community life and economy.
Jarrahdene Timber Mill, built in 1896, was the third mill erected by Davies Timber Co.
The mill was located north of the Boranup, amongst a stand of jarrah.
It discontinued operations in 1913, the year that Davies died.
