Default Anniversary Hill Inn

Does anyone know anything about the Old Anniversary Hill Inn in West Alton? In the early 1800's It belonged to a farmer whose name was Carpenter. I thing It was after the Lakeshore Railroad ceased.

the guest house never burned. The servants quarters burned around 2000. When and who divided the original large lot?. It was 4 acres. The railroad ran right through it about 200 feet from the lake.

It is still there but has been a private home for many years. I believe the inn used to own all the way down to the lake and that there were cabins. Now I think the inn is on a one acre lot. The cabin just below it that burned down was recently rebuilt.

When did the inn keepers house burn?
There is a cabin that was recently built that replaced a cabin that burned.
If they had 2 cabins burn at separate times I would say they have some bad luck.

Here’s a listing from two years ago for what’s described as the guest house of the Anniversary Inn.

My family owned the house from 1962-1966. It had the name Shangri-La on the front of the house.

Sammy are you talking about the Inn or guest House. The Inn was on #11 between Elm St. and Chestnut ST. Later changed to anniversary Hill

Yes the railroad was on what is now Railroad Ave, a town owned and maintained dirt road that runs out to Smith Point Rd. I believe there are a total of 4 properties below the inn and above Railroad Ave. I must be thinking of what you are calling the servants quarters that was recently rebuilt. So were there 2 buildings that burned down on the property? How long ago was it that the inn keepers cabin burned?
