Background

Site

The hotel was on the north east corner of Main Road and Barkly Street.[1]

This had previously been the site of the Beehive Hotel and the Town Hall Hotels, which had been burnt to the ground in 1862. A new Beehive Hotel was built, but was threatened with closure in 1888. After a major renovation in 1891, the hotel was reopened as the Sir Henry Barkly Hotel.[1]

History

  • James Powell, licensee of the Sir Henry Barkly Hotel, Main road, Ballarat East, was fined £5 on a charge of having had his bar door open during prohibited hours. Two other charges of having disposed of liquor after hours, and with having permitted unauthorised persons to remain on the premises, were dismissed. The evidence was of a very contradictory character.[2]
