History[edit | edit source]

In April 1936 an old resident, J. Ulysses Brwon, wrote about the hotel in the 1860s:

Who remembers Maggie Prendergast? Echo answers none. She was the Hebe behind the bar of the Royal Mail Hotel when George Henry Jamieson was licensee. She had a silvery voice, and the writer in passing by the hostelry often listened to her warbling.[2]
