166-168 Old Inglis Street, Ballan. Victoria

This pair of  timber terraced houses (or cottages) in Ballan particularly interests me. Not only is it a pretty good but rare example of terraced housing in a small Victorian town, but it appears to also be an early example as well. Ballan was an important stopover on the goldfields route in the 1850s and this terrace is situated directly facing this main thoroughfare. The appearance of the terraces appears to put them before the 1860s which would make it very rare and historic for both Ballan and Victoria, though it is also possible like many similar, that it has origins as a hotel.
