Arguably the oldest hotel in Fremantle is the Norfolk, an unusual limestone structure that dates back to before the 1893 gold rush. Originally known as the The Oddfellows Hotel , the Norfolk was constructed by 1877 for George Alfred Davies, who was a well known wine and spirit dealer. Born in 1846 to a family who had settled in Western Australia only five years after Captain Fremantle first claimed the area for Britain, Davies was also active in public life, serving in time as a local councillor and in 1895 as the Mayor of Fremantle. To this day, the Norfolk still welcomes accommodation guests through its doors.
