Kurrawang Cottage, Boulder was established in 1977 as part of the Kurrawang Mission run by the Christian Brethren. Its purpose was to provide accommodation for Aboriginal children from Kurrawang to take part in community life as well as going to school in Kalgoorlie. It closed in 1980 and the property was later used for the government-run Goldfields Group Home.
