The "Crown Hotel" was built around 1760 and is characteristic of this period. In its heyday, 1850 to 1892 it became one of the best known hotels in the country, not only for the excellent quality of its beer and spirits, but also because the proprietor, George Jacobs, was not only a publican, but also a reputable horse breeder and dealer.
