HISTORY THE INN

Businessman and hotel owner Seldon M. Combs and his wife Martha built all or most of this house in the late 1890s, and Martha used the two front rooms on the first story (at the time, one large room) as her millinery shop. In 1904 George Hussey purchased the house and added the handsome wrap-around porch and the east side porch. Hussey also divided the millinery shop into two parlors and made other changes. George and Clinney Hussey sold the property in 1907 to E. P. Cahoon and his wife.

Three years later, Mr. Cahoon traded houses with grocer and country, official, Arthur L. Walker who had a house further down Main Street. According to A. L. Walker's descendants, Mr. Cahoon had asked A. L. how he liked his new home. Walker, who had only spent one night in the house, said he didn't much--the ducks in the neighboring pond kept him awake all night. He went on to ask E. P. Cahoon how much more he might want if they were to trade houses– and the deal was struck. A.L. presumably went back home that day and moved--and this wonderful house remained in his family for over 60 years.

In its final and present form, this jewel of the Columbia Historic District is a two-story gable-fronted frame home with weatherboard siding, asphalt shingle roofing, 2/2 sash windows with louvered shutters, scalloped mill work on the eaves and rake, and brick chimneys and enclosed side porch, and an enclosed breezeway connection to the main house. The one-story wrap-around porch added by Hussey features turned posts and balusters, sawn brackets, spindle friezes, small gables over arched section of frieze corresponding to the house's entryways, and a gazebo-like element at the northwest corner capped by a metal (previously wooden) finial. The tile hearth and fireplace
surround.
The newly-renovated bed and breakfast has served travelers from all over the globe. Modern amenities 
compliment the traditional decor throughout this beautiful home.
