Biography/history The Anglican Forrest River Mission for Aborigines was founded in 1896-1897 by Harold Hale but was abandoned after only a few months. A permanent mission was established on the site in 1913. Rev E. R. Gribble took charge of the Mission in December 1913 and remained until the early 1930s. The Mission closed in 1969.
