William Lee of Kelso has had cattle in the area by 1819. He later held property just north of present Molong, around Larras Lee. In 1826, a military and police outpost was established at Molong, on Governor Darling’s orders, as a step in opening up the government stock reserve west of the Macquarie River for settlement. The settlement was approximately 1.5km east of the current location for its first twenty years. The present village of Molong was officially gazetted in March 1849. In 1845, Copper was discovered at Copper Hill, just north of the town.
