1883

The land on which this historic hotel stands was first purchased by Christina Ann Ferguson on 25 September 1883

In 1902 the hotel was developed by Sydney born architect E E Giles who lived locally on East Street

The hotels first licensee was Alfred J Enright from 1902 – 1923 still to this day the longest serving Licensee. We believe the picture below is of the opening of the Hotel.
