Between 1849 to 1857, large numbers of Bullock and Mule teams travelled between Burra and Port Wakefield, carting copper ore from the Burra Copper Works to the Gulf Port and returned with coal and other supplies.

The Port Henry Arms Hotel was built near this site, Hoiles Hill, to serve the Teamsters travelling to and from the Gulf Road.

On the 24th July 1850 James Mansforth was murdered near the Port Henry Arms Hotel and James Yates and convicted of the murder and was hanged at the Adelaide Goal on the 5th September 1850.
