March 26, 2012 – Red Lion Hotel

This fantastic old hotel is now residential apartments.

A quick google turned up an article published in The Argus on on April 20, 1888, referencing the Red Lion Hotel.  The publican, Mrs Catherine Francis was charged with having the bar open on a Sunday (oh the horror).

Less than a year later, she passed away and her wake was held at the Red Lion. The funeral notice was also published in The Argus.
