Built in 1854, the city's second oldest pub, The Grace Darling Hotel was named after a 19th century teenage heroine who was propelled into 1800's style rock stardom when she spotted a ship wreck form her Northumberland lighthouse and rowed out to save 9 sailors. In 1892, the founding fathers of the Collingwood Football Club met here and made a decision to inaugurate the club into the newly formed VFL.
