In Dapto NSW on “Residential - construction...” at 161 Princes Highway, Dapto NSW 2530:

Terry NUNAN commented

The removal of this historical residence will be the destruction of one of the few remaining links with Dapto's past and the many notable characters who laid the foundations for the local community, bringing it from a straggling bush village to a vibrant town, and now a significant suburb. A full account of John Reed's life and contribution to the local commuinty can be found in our recent publication "West Dapto Catholic Cemetery - The Early Families". It would be a pity if the worth of the building was assessed only as that of a humble structure, rather than as a lasting memento of an historical individual and the fledgling community in which both he and his hotel played such important roles.
