Rosewood Hotel in Rosewood
Rosewood Hotel (Middle Pub)
One of three pubs in the main st, hence the name "The Middle Pub
The original Rosewood Hotel which was one of four hotels in Rosewood in the early days, burnt down on the 7th January 1914. When the present Rosewood Hotel was rebuilt a Ghost took residence, dubbed the Water Ghost due to the fact Clothes hanging up are found mysterily Wet and sheets of water have been seen falling from the balcony with no one in site.
The present owner is local Ipswich Councillor David Pahlke and the today houses accommodation rooms on the second level.
"The earlier Rosewood Hotel and eight other buildings were destroyed in a huge fire in January 1914. The hotel was rebuilt shortly afterwards. It is a very handsome two-storey building, with an interesting double verandah. There is an awning across the footpath, the entrance is approached across a small open verandah which is recessed from the footpath and surrounded by a decorative timber valance."
