Railway Tavern/Railway Hotel
Glenrowan Inn was established at the end of 1878 by Mrs Ann Jones.
She paid £6 for the block of land, which had a small slab hut built
on it. A £100 mortgage allowed her to erect a weatherboard building
lined with hessian and paper and ceilings of calico, furnish it,
and have enough money to start the business.
Sunday 27th June 1880, just after midnight, Ned Kelly took over
her Hotel so that it could be used to house the Gang's hostages.
3.30 am the following day, her hotel was nothing but ashes, it being
burnt down by the police, to try and flush the last of the Kelly
Gang out of hiding.
