Background

History

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] It was closed by the Licensing Board in 1922.[2]

Site

The Sir William Don Hotel was in Dana Street[1] on the corner with Ripon Street[3], and shared a boundary with the Benevolent Asylum.[4]

Community Involvement

In 1915 the Superintendent of the Ballarat Benevolent Home spoke at the Licence Reduction Board hearings in favor of the hotel remaining open:

Mr. C. Burrow, superintendent of Ballarat Benevolent Asylum, gave evidence in support of the continuance of the licence of the Sir William Don Hotel, which is contiguous to the asylum. He said he would not deprive the old folk in the asylum of their opportunity for 'a beer' at certain times even if he had to convey them home on a wheelbarrow. (Laughter.)[4]
