Bell (1067m)

A railway platform was opened here in 1875 with the name Mount Wilson. This was changed to Bell in 1889, in honour of Archibald Bell Jnr., of Richmond Hill, who discovered a route over Mount Tomah to the Cox’s River in 1823. This alternative route across the Blue Mountains became known as Bell’s Line of Road.
