The Owner of the Pelham Bridge Hotel Sold it for the Princely Sum of $22,000 in 1869

For many years a little hotel stood near the Pelham Bridge. An image of the hotel, derived from a glass negative in the collections of The Office of The Historian of The Town of Pelham, appears immediately below.

I have written about the Pelham Bridge Hotel before. See Tuesday, June 28, 2005: The Hotel and Bar Room at Pelham Bridge.

In 1869, a tiny item appeared in the New York Herald reporting that the Pelham Bridge Hotel had been sold for the princely sum of $22,000. As part of my efforts to document the history of the area, I have transcribed the brief text of the report immediately below.


Charles Freeman has sold the Pelham Bridge Hotel property in the town of Pelham, to William Florence for $22,000. . . ."
