In March 1991, artist Jean Bellette died in her home on the island of Majorca. Earlier, the Hill End cottage that she shared with her husband Paul Haefliger was bequeathed to the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service, the organisation that has managed the historic site at Hill End since 1967. A condition of the bequest was that the cottage remain an artist's retreat.
Haefligers Cottage is largely unaltered with works of art, books and furnishings that echo the presence of the artists who have lived and worked there since the early 1950s. The Cottage is located on Denison Street, Hill End.
