Description: Farmer Peter Douglass commissioned the Graydons to build this red brick Georgian Survival style house. John Lennon converted it into a hotel in 1876. He named it “Franklin House” after the previous inhabitant. Harry W. Kumpf changed the name to “Queen’s Hotel” when he bought it in 1910. Prohibition put the inn out of business. The building reverted to domestic use and eventually fell into disrepair. It was restored circa 1980.
