Four Hotelsx

Four Hotels:  Rutland has always had hotels for its visitors and also to provide boarding for locals.  These four are typical of their time period.   The Elmore (102 West Street) was in operation from the late 1890s to 1925.  The Crestwood, originally the Baxter Estate at Grove and Library, operated from the mid-1920s to 1942.  The St. James (59 West Street) operated from the late 1890s to the mid-1920s, when it became the Morris Inn, which was open until 1944.  The Grand View (Strongs Avenue and South Main) operated from 1903 to 1919.
