1. History

The town was originally known as Mount Baker in 1897. In 1902 the name was changed to Bakers Hill to avoid confusion with the town of Mount Barker in the Great Southern area. The apostrophe was removed from the name in 1944.

                                     

2. Railways

Bakers Hill was also a station and siding on the second route of the Eastern Railway between Midland Junction and Spencers Brook. This track was closed in 1966 when the route through the Avon Valley was opened.

Although the rail was removed in 1980, remnants of the old station platform are still visible.
