Some time before 1874, Aneurin Heriot sold Ed Culnane allotments numbers nine and ten, section 32 in the Morven Township, for just 20 pounds. This was the land on which the Round Hill Hotel now stands.
It was first named the Bridge Hotel and the year that the Hotel first started trading is not known. The year 1868 has been mentioned but not verified. The name was changed to Round Hill Hotel around 1959 after it left the hands of the O'Donoghue family.
On visiting the Hotel today, you can view interesting old photographs and information relating to the history of Morven as well as the original Cobb and Co stables.
Enjoy an ice cold beverage or something from the bistro menu. Enjoy regular live music and great food specials regularly. See the website for what's on.
Experience the Cobb and Co way, take an easier trip back in time when the coach rolled over flat terrain and tranquil creeks.
Cobb & Co 'Changing Stations' were established by 1877. The route for the run was Wagga Wagga, Cookardinia, Morven, Gerogery and Albury, via Magloplah. Changing stations were set up where the horses could be changed and passengers could take a break.
The Cobb and Co Stables at Morven are situated beside the historic Round Hill Hotel, dating back to the 1850s when the hotel was a Cobb and Co Station.
The decline of Cobb and Co came with the arrival of the Railway line through nearby Culcairn, and today the stables stand as a reminder of times gone past.
