Maclean Hotel in Maclean
The present building is the second Maclean Hotel to be erected on this site. The first, a five roomed wooden structure, was built in 1863 by John McLachlan for Alexander Cameron. Another seven rooms were added in 1875.
The present building was built in 1903-04, and like its predecessor faced the river. The upper storey contained sixteen bedrooms, two parlours, smoking room and a commercial room. Stables and a weatherboard billiard room were also erected adjacent to the Hotel. First Licensee of the new Hotel was James Cooper. The freehold remained in the Cameron family untill 1923.
