Background[edit | edit source]

A newspaper report on the removal of an old building, gave a history of the Commercial Hotel.

OLD BUILDING REMOVED. An old structure was removed from Allendale on Wednesday by Barlow and Son, house contractors. The building was known as the first Commercial hotel built by the late Mr A. Hiscox, and it was the first hotel in the town. Subsequently Mr Hiscox removed to the new Commercial hotel, across the road, which was destroyed by fire some years ago. The building removed yesterday had been in use at one period for the Workmen's Club.[1]
