Administrative history

The Royal George Hotel was built on College St., Antigonish in 1906. It was the premier hotel in the town for many years due to the luxury of having hot and cold running water. C.E. Gregory, local barrister, was the man who had the building erected. It operated successfully as the Royal George until the early 1970s, when new ownership changed the name to the Bonnie Brae Inn. Since that time, the ownership has changed once more and the old name has been restored. No hotel has operated from the building since c. 1978, but several small businesses and offices are located on site. At the time the first daybook (1941-1942) was in use R.K MacDonald was the owner of the Royal George Hotel. He had previously been partners with Joseph Kennedy, who had bought the hotel from its original owner, C.E. Gregory. However, Kennedy only ran the hotel for a short period of time and MacDonald took over. At the time of the third and forth daybooks (1952-1957), George Armour was the operator of the hotel.
