“'The Leather Bottell Inn'”
Named The Leather Bottell Inn after a hotel in Cobham, England which was a popular watering hole for novelist Charles Dickens, this inn dates back to the 1830's and is thought to be the oldest building in Perth. Over the years this property has been transformed from an Inn, Post Office, a private boarding house (originally two storeys), private residence, restaurant, antique store and now back to a residence. Withstanding all this time this one is sure to have many interesting stories - if only these (some 60cm thick) walls could talk!
