It was Thomas Potter Macqueen who was granted 10,000 acres between Scone and Muswellbrook in 1828, and who was responsible for naming the town of Aberdeen,after his friend Earl Aberdeen, and then having it gazetted as a township. In 1837 when he started building the Inn he wrote to Francis Fisher, then Crown Solicitor of New South Wales and described the building as follows -
"The Inn is being now roofed in - it will cost about 100 pounds more in window glass, ironwork for doors, nails, etc., and perhaps 200 pounds for labour - but it is the best building of the sort in the colony - it is of solid stone two feet thick - the lower rooms 14 the upper rooms 11 feet high - it contains two large parlours, landlord's family room - one small parlour and double bed room below - five bedrooms and two dormitories for male and female servants above - detached kitchen - tap room and store - it is beautifully situated - has a well of superb clear water in the garden, with one paddock of 30 acres of pasture and another of 10 acres for green barley for the horses...........it has excited great attention in this neighbourhood........"
