Here is the only example of a Hawes' designed and constructed headstone.
It was to be his most personal and most original church and, as he wrote at the time, his devotion to the task was complete.
'I am building into these stones at Mullewa, poor little feeble church that it is, my convictions, aspirations and ideals as to what a church should be.' Outside Mullewa on the Mount Magnet road is an area known as the old Show Ground.
The Priest House Next to the church is The Priest House which is open to the public from 10.00-11.45 and 1.30-3.00 Monday to Friday. It is a truly unusual and charming building with an inglenook fireplace, half-panelled walls, latticed bow windows with box seats and lots of Hawes' memorabilia including a plaster bust he made as an arts student and a cup he won at the races in Yalgoo.The stone was carved for Selby John Arnold, one of the altar boys in the Mullewa Church.Butterabby Grave To get to the Butterabby site take the Mingenew Road west of Mullewa and proceed along it until you reach the sign: 'Gravestones - Butterabby'.The grave is on private ground and is marked by a single piece of stone on which is written 'In these graves lie James Rudd speared here at Butterabby 23 Sept 1864.Also Garder, Wangayakoo, Yourmacarra, Charlacarra, Williacarra. Natives sentenced in Perth and hanged here for the spearing of Thomas Bott at Butterabby 22 August 1864.'
