Details (Known As) Dwelling and Museum (former Miner's Home Hotel & Outbuilding)
Registered Name Former Miner's Home Hotel and Outbuilding
Significance This early hotel was first licensed to John Day in December 1850. The existing red brick building is mentioned in the licence application and dates from this time. It was built by John Day and his brother, who owned mines in Moonta, and has been recently used as house and museum. A slate headstone set in the floor marks the site where a seven year old girl was buried in 1870. This building is an important relic of the originally large township of Armagh and a rare example in the South Australian country of early all-brick construction.

While due care has been taken to ensure that the SA Heritage Places Database accurately reflects the South Australian Heritage Register and listings of Local Heritage Places in Development Plans, the State of South Australia does not accept liability for the use of the SA Heritage Database for any purpose. Users should consult the Department for Environment and Water - Heritage South Australia to confirm the listing of State Heritage Places and the relevant Development Plan for Local Heritage Places/Contributory Items.

In the majority of cases, the maps of State Heritage Places on this web site show the footprints of the most significant structures on a registered Place. However, sometimes they simply indicate the complete area of land comprising the Place. Work is proceeding to further refine the mapping of such places. It is also important to note that development control is not limited to the registered structures but extends to their setting and structures nearby (what is termed ‘development affecting’ a State Heritage Place). Hence it is vital that exact details of the listed place and implications for any proposed development be discussed with Heritage South Australia staff, as they cannot be deduced solely from the information on this web site. The inclusion of a place in the SA Heritage Register gives no right of public access. Permission to visit properties must be sought from the owners. The accuracy of the mapping of State Heritage Places is not guaranteed. Please contact Heritage SA ( https://www.environment.sa.gov.au/topics/heritage/sa-heritage-register) if you believe there is an error.
