Between 1827 and 1829 a sod walls house with grass-thatched roof was built for troopers on Major Lockyers Road and called ‘Sodwalls.’
The village of Sodwalls is shown on an original 1867 work plan for the construction of the railway, as being established around the present ‘Sodwalls house.’
Granite was taken from several Sodwalls quarries for monumental works in 1957 used in the construction of Anzac House and the Bank of NSW building in Sydney. Bricks for the construction of railway viaducts were made on several properties.
