History[edit | edit source]

The hotel was destroyed by fire in December 1882:

ALARM OF FIRE. At an early hour this morning the Eastern and Western bells tolled forth the alarm of fire. There appeared to be some confusion as to the whereabouts of the fire, as it was first thought to be in the East. The fire was subsequently reported to be in the direction of Haddon. The brigades went out to render assistance. Later this morning our informant, Mr James Corcoran, of Haddon, who rode into Ballarat in haste with the news, states that the Heather Bell hotel, stables, and private house adjoining are totally destroyed by fire. Thee origin is at present unknown, but it is supposed the fire was the work of an incendiary. The house and contents were valued at fully £500, and the total loss is estimated by the proprietor, Mr A. Campbell, of the St. Mungo Hotel, at close upon £1000. The premises were only partially insured. At the time our informant left about 80 men were endeavouring to save the adjoining property of Mr Meagher.[2]

Community Involvement[edit | edit source]

In 1876 the hotel was a venue for a public meeting to form a branch of the National Reform League.[3]
