"Do not stand on my grave and weep
I am not there, I do not sleep
I am a thousand winds that blow
I am the diamond glints on snow
I am the sunlight on ripened grain
I am the gentle autumn rain
When you awaken in the mornings hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight
I am the soft stars that shine at night
Do not stand at my grave and cry
I am not there, I did not die!"
Situated on the Newell Highway between Brocklehurst and Gilgandra this small village evolved from a roadside inn/store known as The Coalbaggie Inn that was established in 1874. A small settlement grew between 1872 and 1881 as various selectors took up land surrounding the inn. The original settlement being named after the Inn - Coalbaggie.
The railway arrived in 1901 and a timber mill opened on the line at Coalbaggie Creek and other development was spurred on.
The village was dedicated as Eumungerie in 1904 - Eumungerie being and Aboriginal word for quandong, a native peach tree.
