Historical Inns, Hotels and Bed and Breakfasts in the USA


Historic Hotels, Inns, and Bed and Breakfasts
The Historic Swan Levine House in Grass Valley, California -  The Swan Levine House plays significantly into the history of Nevada County. It was built in 1867 by John and Catherine Fahey, who were partners in the Alison Ranch Mine. They sold it to William Campbell, a local merchant who made his fortune selling mining equipment. Before becoming an inn, this home was a hospital in the early 1900's. After the hospital closed,  Howard Levine and Margaret Warner Swan purchased the the house after the hospital closed; renovating it as a guest house with a focus on their interest in visual arts and printmaking. The fine art of Printmaking is illustrated by their extensive collection of art throughout the house.

The Beiger Mansion - The Beiger Mansion Inn is one of the most unique Bed and Breakfast establishments you will ever visit.The four- level neo-classical limestone structure was built in 1903-1907 by Martin V. and Susie Higgins Beiger. Mr. Beiger was an early industrialist who became Mishawaka's first self-made millionaires. The gracious Mansion, now listed on the National Register of Historic Places, was built to fulfill Susie Beiger's desire to have a home similar to that of a friend whom she often visited in Newport, Rhode Island.

The Grand Victorian - In 1890, a young man by the name of Henry Richardi began construction of what is now recognized by experts as one of the most perfect examples of Queen Anne Victorian Architecture. A successful business man and owner of the Richardi & Bechtold Woodenware Factory of Bellaire, Henry put his heart and soul into the home that was intended for his German bride-to-be. But, for reasons now lost to rumor, they never married. Broken-hearted, Henry left the area, leaving his new home for future owners to enjoy. Since Henry left the home, the “1895 Richardi House” has been blessed with owners who have immaculately maintained the home in its original form. In 1978,the home's authenticity was acknowledged through its addition to the U. S. Department of the Interior's National Register of Historic Places. The general public has been able to access the home since 1989, when it became the "Richardi House Bed and Breakfast Inn". Then new owners performed a major renovation beginning in 1991 renaming the home "Grand Victorian Bed and Breakfast Inn". Now, honored guests have an opportunity to spend time in this unique home and absorb the expert craftsmanship that Henry originally had intended for his young bride.
