The recent sale of Maryborough’s historic Federal Hotel is positive sign of things to come for the Fraser Coast region, says Division Four Councillor Daniel Sanderson
“There is growing confidence in the city, which is reflected by the number of recent property sales, development applications and enquiries,” he said.
“Owning and running your own business is a big operation and I know the locals will make the new owners of the Federal Hotel feel welcome and appreciated.”
The Federal Hotel was built in 1884 and retains much of its historic charm.
The Federal also enjoyed some notoriety in the 1950s when a dead man was discovered on the premises. Police at the time discovered a cache of 80,000 pounds in cash under the body. The money was never claimed nor the mystery solved.
