Ulladulla’s police station was originally housed on the corner of Wason Street and the Princes Highway, surrounded by a distinct white picket fence.
Manned by Constable John Hamilton, who used to ride a pushbike between Milton and Ulladulla for patrols, the stationwas built in the 1860s.
Before Hamilton and the station came to town, any law issues were said to have been dealt with at David Warden’s general store on Ulladulla Harbour.
The station building, a weatherboard structure, was later moved to the top of the hill, north of where Harris Scarfe is today, on the Princes Highway.
It was then moved to Church Street, Milton by Legacy for Sue and Bud Hepper. The building remains in Church Street today, but has been altered.
Following the removal of the Ulladulla-based police station, a station was opened in the already existing Milton Court House building. The court remains there today.
In the 1990s, the police station was moved to where we know it to be in Ulladulla today, on the corner of North Street and Princes Highway.
It is also believed a lock up and court house was located at the Green and Camden Street intersections at one time.
When the original police station was moved from the corner of Wason Street and the Princes Highway, the Fitch family acquired the block. They already owned the block next door where they operated a general store and post office.
The corner block has remained empty since the relocation of the police station.
