A  street information plaque records: This is a World War II Sidney Williams hut which had formed part of the number three hostel between Smith and Cavenagh Streets in Darwin. It was purchased in February 1957 for 150 [pounds]. After being transported to Batchelor, volunteer labour set it up in the standard representation of those huts utilised for so many purposes around this time. It was lined with masonite and the external resheeting done in fibro. A coloured concrette floor was poured inside, and louvres installed to replace the standard hinged openings. The sandstone font was commissioned by Ken Levy, and was built by the tradesmen who built the Catholic Cathedral in Darwin.
