About Linville Hotel: 

The Pioneer Hotel which celebrated its centenary in 2004 was first built at the railway terminus at Moorabool beyond Toogoolawah in 1904 and was moved, probably by bullock wagon to its present site in 1911 when the trains had reached Linville.
The publican was Alex McCallum and he also had the mail coach contract to Nanango. Mail and passengers would arrive at Linville by train and continue further up the Brisbane Valley by McCallum’s coach.
His brother, Pat McCallum was the longest serving postman in early Queensland, serving the sometimes inaccessible districts beyond Nanango and delivering mail by horse.
His son, Reg McCallum is the longest serving Mayor in Queensland, still representing Nanango Shire in his eightieth year. The Pioneer Hotel is a fairly representative country hotel for 1904 but its history is linked with one of the most interesting families of the Upper Brisbane Valley. The hotel is still open for business.
