History[edit | edit source]

The hotel's license was reviewed by the Creswick Licensing Court in January, 1916.[1] The hotel was one of six in the Creswich district closed by the License Reduction Board in 1916.[2] The hearings were held in February 1916:

The Federal hotel, Sulky was the next on the list, and the owner Mr Frederick Charles Redman, appeared for himself and his wife, the later being the licensee. Mounted Constable Collins gave evidence that the hotel was maintained by the travelling public and drovers. The nearest hotel is the Bull and Mouth at Creswick, and on the south side the Royal Oak, Ballarat. The Bald Hills hotel having been closed, the Federal should be a convenience to those in that locality. He did not know if there would be any hardship or inconvenience to the public if the Federal were closed. The owner stated he had been in possession for 17 years, his wife being licensee for that time. He would like the hotel retained, but would leave it to the board to say whether it was required or not. Decision reserved till Tuesday.[3]
