Smith's Store/Hotel Empty
PostSubject: Smith's Store/Hotel   Smith's Store/Hotel EmptyTue May 14, 2024 7:17 pm

Smith's Store/Hotel was a key point on the Lower Tugela River before the Zulu War.  It supplied accommodation and supplies for hunters and traders going into Zululand and provided a pont to carry them across the river.  During the Zulu War the hotel was utilized by Lord Chelmsford and members of his staff whenever they were at the Lower Tugela to inspect the forces there and again prior to the Eshowe Relief.  Both Commodore Sullivan and his replacement Commodore Richards stayed at the hotel, and HMS Active's naval brigade officers held a farewell party for Commodore Sullivan before they left for Eshowe with Colonel Pearson.

Does anyone know the history of Smith's Hotel and who was its proprietor at the beginning of the war?
