History[edit | edit source]

In December 1865 a large meeting was held at the hotel:

The electors of the Springs, near Mount Bolton, being a portion of the electoral district of Creswick, held a public meeting at the Bellevue hotel, near the Springs, on Tuesday last, Mr Cbarlas Schultze, of the Lextonshire Council, in the chair. Among those present were many of the leading men of the locality. A resolution was screed to pledging the persons present to do all in their power to ensure the return to the new Legislative Assembly of Messrs Fraser and Wheeler, the present members for the district, who appear, in this portion of the district, at all events, to have given satisfaction to their constituents. It was further agreed to defray all the election expenses of the locality. A large committee was formed, which is to meet to-morrow evening at the Springs hotel to make arrangements for circulating a requisition for signature.[1]
