Statement of significance:

A considerably intact single storey late 19th/early 20th Century brick cottage sited in an urban alignment in close juxtaposition to the street frontage, which is likely to have further links of note associated with development of the historically important McIulas grant of Camden/Elderslie, and which are only now survived by a relatively few remaining dwellings. A good representation of its type in the Camden area.

Historical notes: Grant boundaries within Camden remain as a reminder of some of the earliest large land grants made in Colonial NSW. The first grants made within the area known as Elderslie were given to Thomas Herbert and Daniel Mclulas in 1810 and later to John Oxley 'Elderslie' in 1816.

The property at 49 Hilder Steet resides on a block that originally formed part of the Mclulas grant, and further research may assist in realising its historical reasons for its establishment in the way we see today.
