The gold rush up the Grey River in 1865 founded many towns in the Grey Valley, and a localised rush on Twelve Mile Creek founded a number of towns, one of which was auspiciously named Notown. With a large initial population as the small creek was rushed, the population soon settled and a community quickly established. Now there is nothing to mark the site of the town itself, further up the road the cemetery remains, as does the original church relocated to ‘Shantytown’ heritage park south of Greymouth.
