During the 1800s hotels played an integral part in the early history of the settlement. They provided a focal point for social activity and were often looked upon as semi-official establishments.
The Land Of Promise Hotel was one of those establishments where the first public meetings were held resulting in the formation of the district of Hindmarsh. The City of Hindmarsh existed until its amalgamation with Woodville Council with the consequent result being the formation of The City of Charles Sturt.
Upon the dissolution of the city of Hindmarsh the final council meeting was again held at the Land Of Promise Hotel out of respect to its historical significance.
