Hotel History

Built by H.W. Horton in the 1920s, our historical building honors the traditions of our small town while providing a unique boutique experience. The original Horton building was both a Studebaker dealership and a Spainhour’s Department Store. We aim to continue the Horton legacy as a great place to gather and enjoy friends, drinks, views, and the finer things.
