Bridge St looking north from QE2 Square
The building on the left, The Royal Hotel, was built in 1891 on one of the first blocks of land sold in Muswellbrook (1834). The building on the right is the former School of Arts, later Town Hall Complex, and converted to a Regional Arts Centre in 2000. The builder of the hotel was John Lowe who came from Sydney to construct the hotel. Lowe built many significant buildings around Muswellbrook at that time.
