Buildings in Holbrook, NSW

The town of Holbrook's buildings in the main street..
The Woolpack Inn Museum was once a Hotel, some history below from the Museum.

The Museum is a two story heritage listed historic building in the main st of Holbrook.
The original Woolpack Inn was opened in 1839 by John Mitten and continued trading until it was destroyed by fire in 1895.
The current building was built as the Criterion Hotel in 1895 and was affectionately known by the locals as the 'Bottom Pub' which continued trading until 1965.
In 1971 after a good deal of work by volunteers the Woolpack Inn Museum opened it's doors to the public.

  2. Un hotel de la época, que seguramente tendría gran demanda de clientes. Ahora los hoteles se han modernizado y es ideal para Museo.

  3. Quintessential country architecture. Which I miss. I have lived in a city for too long.

    1. Always nice to see this type of architecture in the country...cities certainly don't always seem to keep these types of buildings.

  6. As I've written before, I love seeing the architecture of these older towns. Fascinating similarities to ours, yet very different.

    1. They do, if none there wouldn't be such buildings restored in this town.
