Alexander Tolmer established a half-way stopover camp for the police troopers of his gold escort on the banks of the Tatiara Creek near Scott's Woolshed in 1852.
The township of Bordertown was surveyed adjacent to this camp the same year.
The gold escort was given the task of safely delivering the gold mined by South Australians at the Victorian goldfields back to Adelaide to rescue the State from bankruptcy.
