Note Date Short Description Note Text
3342 c1930 General notes. J P Parcell was using an area of land on the eastern side of Bannockburn Creek to grow carrots for the pest destruction board. The board cut them up and used them as food to control rabbits. They would feed out oats and carrots a couple of times, then feed out poisoned oats and carrots. There was good money to be made supplying the carrots to the rabbit board. J P Parcell would walk over to tend his carrot patch from his home in Bannockburn (dwelling #61). The hut was used to store his tools, and because of the distance from home, he would sometimes stay the night in the hut. It is unclear if the hut had originally been at this location, or if it had been moved here by J P Parcell. The huts previous history is unknown at this time.
