A little walk-through history
A Planters Club named as The Gymkhana Club was started in the year 1905 for the gentlemen planters of the High Range club, with a loan from the erstwhile Kanan Devan Hills Produce Co. Ltd. High Range club was formally set up with furnitures and fixtures in the year 1909 and by 1910, it was completed. The first coolie gymkhana for the company workers were held here. In 1940, the last coolie gymkhana was held and was attended by the Travancore Maharaja.
High Range Club was one of the first planter’s clubs to be electrified and one of the few clubs built as a heritage resort / residential club. The club installed telephones in 1916. The majority of the club was severely damaged during the 1924 flood, which hit the region and changed the face of the High Range’s hills and dales. However, everything was later redone.
The Pullivasal Hydro Electric Scheme’s construction of a Decantation Chamber and headworks threatened the Club Grounds. Fortunately, the grounds were spared from complete destruction.
In 1934, the Dewan of Travancore became the Club’s first Indian member. In 1935 for the use of Moylam & Co., who initiated the Pullivasal Hydro- Electric Works, the cottages were constructed. In 1941 these cottages were used for visitors and then for 75/- per room per month they were rented out. Later in 1979 these cottages were modified and converted to self contained rooms, with mosaic tiling, enclosed verandahs, glazed windows etc. In 1958, the first Indian was elected to the Club Committee. In 1972, the club celebrated Diwali and Independence Day for the first time. W. O. Milne was the first planter to hang his hat in the Men’s Lounge (at the end of thirty years of continuous resident membership at the Club), a tradition that continues to this day.
The old-world charm of this Munnar heritage resort continues within a 6 acre area with a river forming its natural boundary. It is sure that your time at this historic plantation club will provide you with a different yet beautiful experience while leaving you with great memories….
