Kaladhungi gets its name from Kala (black) and Dhunga (stone), which was found here and used to smelt iron. Corbett shot the last cattle lifter in Kaladhungi in 1946 at the request of the villagers. Earlier, when the the road from Nainital to Kathgodam was built, Kaladhungi served as a resting point for travelers who would undertake an arduous climb to Nainital. Dandies and ponies were used by the elderly and children. Corbett walked along this route several times to attend meetings at Nainital. In 1922 Jim Corbett built this Irish-styled cottage spread over fourteen bighas for him and his family. Before leaving for Kenya in 1947, he handed this house to a friend with hope of returning to India. However, Corbett could never come back and the property was later sold to the forest department to be converted into a museum in 1967 as homage to the great conservationist.
