Black Spur Historic Hut, Seymour Stream

This is a historic station hut that once squeezed in ten bunks. It was built from split willow slabs, a snow grass thatched roof, and a stone fireplace. By the 1930s the roof had become corrugated steel.

In the 1970s it was done up, including the pouring of a rough concrete slab, and adding mud between the timber slabs, but is now in only average condition. DOC considers that it is only for emergency use these days. Worth a visit though.
