The homestead was allowed to deteriorate to the point where it could not be rebuilt. However KHA received a Heritage Grant to purchase the remains of the homestead in 1992.
More recently, KHA and ACT parks received funding from the ACT Government for a partial reconstruction from the original material. A part of the project was to develop interpretation - a history and the hertiage significance of the structure.
The working group comprised staff from ACT Heritage Unit, Namadgi National Park, a member of the Bootes family, Damien de Marco, Neville Locker (Adaminaby historian), KHA representatives and a consultant architect.
An interpretive shelter containing the remains and explanatory notes can be seen behind the Namadgi Visitor's Centre.
