    Histories
    Segenhoe Hotel
    Segenhoe Hotel
    No doubt an interesting story behind this one...were these lodgers at the Inn or just regular drinking patrons? Had there been an incident involving dynamite at one of the mines - "Dynamite Blood" is painted on the side of the barrel.
    Was one of their mates killed? Were the miners revolting? The flag featuring the Skull and Crossbones also reads "Bunyips Defiance". What is the meaning behind this? This is all part of the intrigue behind the history of Segenhoe, the mystery is still being investigated! (Photo taken in 1889)

    Segenhoe Main St 1905
    Purpose built as an Inn in 1837 by Thomas Potter Macqueen on the estate named Segenhoe after Segenhoe Manor where he was born in Bedfordshire, England in 1791. Segenhoe would have serviced many horse drawn carriages and coaches and accommodated many travelers on long and dusty journeys. Built just 50 years after white settlement, Segenhoe Inn is a very significant heritage building. In 1905 this horse and buggy was traveling along Maqqueen Street, now better known as the New England Highway.
