A Brief History
The story of The Globe Inn began with the arrival in NSW of Charles Quail, a convict, in the early 1830s. At the time of his marriage to Susannah Patrick in 1839 he was described as a 'carrier' of Yass. In 1843 he was granted a liquor licence for the Swan Inn at Yass which he held until 1847 when the licence was transferred to The Globe Inn. By 1849 the licence was held in the name The Globe Hotel.
Since that time The Globe Inn has followed many paths, including a boarding house, a block of flats, a private residence and its present form; a bed and breakfast. Fortunately it has retained much of its wonderful ambience and original Georgian features and is a fine example of the Australian Georgian architecture.
