Emerald Hills have been part of the lush grazing district that made Camden Valley famous since European settlement. Prior to this time Aboriginal groups travelled extensively through the area. Later, in the 1960’s, The Presbytyrian Church (Later the Uniting Church’s Burnside Homes) established St Andrews Boys Home. The school buildings, now gone, were designed by renowned Sydney Architects Philip Cox and Ian McKay and were the recipient of a Sulman Award for architecture in 1963.
