History[edit | edit source]

In August 1913, the publican, Daniel Gardiner, was asked to stand as a candidate in the shire elections.[1]

In August 1914, the hotel was saved from a fire:

What might have been a disastrous fire was discovered in time to avert serious damage at the Railway Hotel on Friday. The dining-room fireplace had been built over an old stump, which, owing to the bricks becoming loosened, had caught fire, and was "stoving out," as the bushmen term it. A smell of burning had been noticed for some days, and search had been made for the cause, but without result. Eventually the housemaid noticed the smoke issuing through the crack in the bricks, and prompt measures were taken to extinguish the fire, which had by this time caught the flooring joists.[2]
