Community Involvement[edit | edit source]

  • In February 1869, W. H. Thompson, a candidate in the Ballarat East Borough elections, used the hotel for a political meeting:

Mr W. H. Thompson- addressed meetings of ratepayers of Ballarat East on Wednesday evening in the Black Hill, Peel street, and Humffray street neighborhoods. At the Lancashire Arms, Black Hill, there was a large attendance, but at the later meetings at the Bute hotel, Peel street, and the Red Bull hotel, Humffray street, the meetings were smaller, the thunderstorm having no doubt prevented many persons from leaving their homes.[1]
