A member of the NSW Police Force shot by bushranger Dan Morgan in the surrounding hills on 4 September 1864. Senior Sergeant Smyth received a gunshot wound to his left shoulder and convalesced at the Imperial Hotel, Albury until 29 September 1864 where he haemorrhaged as a result of the gunshot wound and died.

The Henty Man

Olympic Highway, Henty NSW 2658
Located between the towns of Henty and Culcairn on the Olympic Highway, is the Henty Man. This man was originally shaped by an itinerant worker in the early 1930s from a tree burnt out by a swagman's fire. It became a district landmark until it was destroyed by natural elements about 20 years later. Prior to Henty's Centenary in 1986, it was decided by local identities to restore 'The Man' for that occasion, and this was done with the help of the former Culcairn Shire Council. At the Centenary celebrations, Councillor Hugh McKay dedicated it to the men of the road, who had to walk the length and breadth of Australia during the Great Depression seeking work. The Henty Man is now an RTA rest area with picnic tables, refuse bins and toilets.
