In 1857, a hotel was established on this site to serves the thirsty diggers on route to the gold fields in Western Victoria.

The facade of the current building dates back to the 1870's. It was the business and home of Thomas Burge Derham,  a significant businessman and land owner of the local area.

The hotel was not only a refreshment and stop over point for travelers, the building was also used as a court house, the Shire of Braybrook used it for their meetings and a place for autopsies.

In the mid 1940's the hotel was purchased by the Ballarat Brewing Company.
