History[edit | edit source]

In September 1900, one of the 30 new fire alarms installed in Ballarat was placed outside the hotel.[2]

On 22 March 1915, the hotel was included on a list of hotels to be deprived of their licenses. This list was complied by the Licenses Reduction Board in Melbourne. The Ballarat West licensing district hearings on this list were to be held on 27 April.[1] The hotel was one of about 40 hotels closed by the License Reduction Board and ceased trading at 9.30pm on 31 December 1915.[3] The court paid £400 compensation.[4]


Community Involvement[edit | edit source]

  • In September 1894, John W. Rail, a candidate in the Ballarat West election, used the hotel for a political meeting.[5]
