This hotel was located on the east side of the upper end of Main Street built in 1836 by William T. Leighton. By 1900, there were two stories made of brick and two new stories made of wood and a second floor veranda. The building was now four stories and there was a livery stable connected. This was a popular stopover for travelers. There was a dining room on the first floor. A wide staircase led to the second floor with rooms used primarily by individuals and families. The third floor had large rooms where men generally stayed. Owners included Sam Libby and Robert J. Burr. This building was demolished on March 19, 1958 leaving just enough of the building standing to have a modern restaurant to operate in connection with the Lincoln House Motel.
