Did you know…

Wauchope is thought to be named after Captain Wauch, an early landowner.

Settlement of the Wauchope area dates from the 1820s when cedar was cut.

A village was established in 1836 when the first land grants were made.

The population grew steadily in the 1800s, especially during the 1860s and 1880s when many timber mills and a butter factory were built.

By 1880 Wauchope had developed as a timber town at the centre of a dairying and cattle raising district.

Significant growth occurred from 1914, spurred by the opening of the railway line.
