A Rich Heritage
Eatons Hotel is state heritage listed.
Originally built in 1839 as the white hart inn, it didn't become Eatons Hotel until 1866.
The hotel is rich in history but few photos have survived from the early days. One of the few photos is of Mr H. R. Flanders, a once proud hotelier of Eatons and the first hotel keeper in NSW to establish a motor car in connection with his business.
It was beautifully painted and upholstered in green with 6 seats making it possible for guests to travel from
other towns like Merriwa, Denman, Aberdeen etc.
Eatons Hotel has undergone many renovations and repairs in its long life including extensive restoration in 1996 and a large renovation in 2007 which seen the hotel renovated and repaired internally and a large extension added to the back. It has kept its heritage features but added a light, spacious and contemporary feel. Although the hotels exterior is still awaiting its turn for a makeover don't let it deceive you, Eatons is well known in the area as the locals choice.
