Description: Situated at the mouth of the Credit River on the east bank, the Wilbur House was located near the Government Inn. Built in 1847 by Robert Lynd, who had lived in the Government Inn until it was torn down, it was originally called the Commercial Hotel. Lynd initially leased out the building to James Savell, and it was later taken over by George Armstrong. By 1858 Lynd himself had taken over management of the hotel, which he continued until his death in 1872. It was taken over by Mrs. Grafton in 1880. In 1907 the building was bought by A. M. Wilbur who changed the name to the Wilbur House. The building was demolished in 1913 when the Lakeview Inn was built behind it. From the Harold Hare Collection.
