Additional Hearly Forgotten Fact-
Wedaeedar of last week, July 1, 1908,
was tbo fiftieth anniversary of tbo for
mal opening of tbo Alton House, and
tbe writer IwIiavM himself tbo only per
son now living who took any part in tbe
actual mechanical work required in the
construction of tbe original building.

when it was finished blazing out as it
did in all tbe glory ot gold lout and

Ilonesdala had several hotels when
the Allen House was built, but its erec
tion was nevertheless regardod no neces
sary to supply the sterootypnd "long
felt want." Tbe old bostclriod were
onular and well patronized, but ihey
wero all at tbat timo types ot lb.5 old-
fashioned wayside tavern, nnd not in
keeping with the genernl appearauce of
the place, or adequato for thu accommo
dation ot tbe traveling public. Tne
public hotels wero tho Wayno County
Uouso, built in IBM, liy Ubarles Korboa,
and then conducted by E. IluoJ; tbo
Mansion House, Thomas Sherwood, pro
prietor; tho Union Hotel, corner Main
and Ninth etroots, Isaac Clinton, land
lord; tho Coyne Uouso, corner Main
and Cth atroota, originally built by
Uirum Plum for Augustus Backet, nnd
thenthe property of Patrick Burns;
with porhaps soma smaller places ot en
tertsinmcnt. Allot these concerns were
subsequently burnod or demoliahod to
make room for more up-to-date struct
urea, flao stores now occupying eomo of
tbe sites, and handsome three story
brick hotels tbo others. Henry Dart
and Myron Jakway both disposed of
tbeir hotels in tba fall of 1850, with the
intention of going west. Tbo former
located in liock Inland, III,, and tho lat
ter in Mattoon, 111.
Tbe movement which resultod in tbo
final erection ot tbo Alton Uoui-) first
took shupo in tbo winter ot 18SG 7.
Samuel Allen, after whom tho hotel
was named, and who was its proprietor
at tbo timo of his doith, wai born in
Chelsea. Vt Nivcmber 2. 1818 He
grew up in his nativo State, and after
some youthful ventures iu othor direc
tions, llnatly bscima quite oitomive-
ly interested in stago linos, tbo Cun
cord thorough-brace conch being at that
timo about tbo only meaus of ptsaoogtir
transportation, and himself having be
come an expert and populir driver.
When twenty-five years of ago ho mar
ried Mies Betsey Barrett, aluo a native
ot Vermont, and for tbo convenience ot
bis business changed his residence into
New Hampshire. In a few years, how
ever, tbe construction of a railroad hav
ing paralleled his route in New England,
be accepted a proposition to transfer his
plant to Eiaton, in, this State. Homo
sharp praotico or breach of faith on the
part ot the parties with whom be bad
been negotiating induced him to start an
opposition line ot his own, which bo
was eventually enabled to dispose of
much to his advantage. Previous to
1818, when the Erie Railroad was ex
tended through Narrowsburg, travel be

K is tern Pennsylvania and Southern
New Xprk was by the old.North.and
South Road, and, aftor turnpikes sue
weeded that thorougbtaro on tbe same
route, by tbe Belmont & Easton nnd
tho Miltord and Owego pikea. In 1851
the Honesdaleand Dataware Plank road
was finished from Narrowaburg to
Honesdale, and stago lines wero at onco
established between tboae two points.

the Mooslo to Cirbjndale, and thence

Mr. Allen wis proprietor ot thi liooes

be cilled now the ttaranUm oai. All
were exporianosd "whipi," and could
handle six horses with quito ns much
gracoand safety as though they hal

arrangement soon resultod in h partner
ship between Mr. Alien and Mr. Ilronaon,
which was existing when tbe now hotel

By tbe beginning of Mirch, 1837, lb)
matter had taken deQnito shapn. Th:
lot on wbicb tho original nnd main por
tion ot the Allea Uouso standi, oa thu
corner of Ninth and Church streets, up
to that time had boeu vacant. Several
liberal mindod citizons tbon contributed
sufficient funds for the purchaso of tbo
land, and made Messrs Alton & Brouson
present of it on condition that they
would erect thureoo, during that season,
a concrete hotel, 10J feet iu front uud
tbroo stories in height. It was under
