    Excerpt Ledger Dispatch - July 3, 1908
    The Commercial hotel is undorgoing quite on improvement. The old sidewalk la being taken up, and they expect to replace it with cement. This will be quite an advantage as tbe boards are getting quite old and unsafe.

    The old Veranda Hotel was on this site but burned in 1884. Thomas Bennet, a brother of Mrs. C.C. Prouty and Mrs. Rosalie Raab, was burned to death. The new hotel was built the same year and called the Commercial Hotel.
