The Mitta Pub, A Popular Destination
Formerly known as The Laurel, the Mitta Pub was built in the mid to late 1800’s. It was originally a weatherboard building owned by Barnett and Douglas. Left abandoned for years, it became a derelict building for cattle to wander around and children to play in.
George Lewis came along and took up The Laurel again with the front brick portion of the pub being erected by Mrs. Elizabeth Craig in 1906.
The Laurel was one of three pubs to be built in Mitta. The Junction, which was later destroyed by fire and the Bridge Hotel, which was de-licensed in 1949 and then became a guesthouse. All three pubs were built in an era of cattlemen, loggers and miners.
The Laurel or Mitta Pub to this day is a place to visit.
