Historic Guesthouse Location in Old Gold Mining Town and Mineral ReserveThe Station House Daylesford was a former guesthouse named the Laurels back in the days of horse drawn coaches. Later passengers arrived by the train and now by car. The owner back then was the first to start bottling mineral water for sale and was appointed the 'Borough' water forman. Also he was a mine manager engineer at a close by mine 'Concordia' at Kidds Gully. Other local land mark structures were also built by the first occupier of this site. The township was called Wombat back then, but now known as Daylesford. The land was a former sheep run until gold was found where the Daylesford Lake is now located. The licence holder of the sheep run was overrun by miners during the gold rush and so instigated a subdivison of his land lease rights that allowed businesses pop up in support of mining. The sheep run was a former aboriginal protecterate. That area was later defined as land north of Mt Franklin and East of Jim Crow Creek also named after an aboriginal character of the time. The Laurels guesthouse finished circa 1926 and later became a ice-works for a while and the local milk dairy owners worked dairy trucks from this land. Then in 1994 the homestead reverted back to a guesthouse. The original builder of the house was an American from Vermont north of N.Y. (known for the Autum trees) and located on the boarder of Canada. This property played its part in the early years of developement of Victoria and locally, by providing some confort to travelers. Not only in accommodation, but use the outside doubled seated dunny which still exists for historical purpose only (of course the toilets are inside now). Many changes have been made but the history has been retained.
