The first hotel was built in the 1890s and the second in 1920 by Hymie Glazer and local farmer Harry Watson. It was said that Watson took Glazer under his wing after Glazer came to the town on a donkey with only £2 in his pocket. The first hotel was then turned into a shop, run by Glazer, from which daily necessities and even cars could be bought.
