AN ANCIENT HOSTELRY
There are several Woolpack Hotels in the State, but the oldest of them all, with the exception perhaps of that at Parramatta, has lately been demolished at Canterbury.
The earliest inhabitants, differ as to its age. Some say it had nearly reached the century, but Mr. Joseph Wren, an old native of the place, gives the age of the hotel at about 80 years.
Among the licensees of the old Woolpack were Messrs. Samuel Miller, James File, Kelsey, William Rogers, and M. A. Wagschall. The last-named is the proprietor of the modern Woolpack Hotel, built alongside of the site of its old namesake.
