Listed in the National Register of Historic Places, The Stowe Inn is one of the town’s architectural treasures. Earliest records date a small framed house to be the first structure on the property in 1814. Somewhere between 1814 and 1820, the four chimney brick structure that still stands today was built by a brick mason from Boston.
In the mid 1800’s the second owner of the property, Morris H. Cady, built a factory behind his home for the manufacturing of carriages.
In 1888, long after Cady closed his carriage shop, the property was purchased by C.L. McMahon and Van R. Chase. These men, along with the help of 800 cows from supporting dairies, established the Mt. Mansfield Creamery as one of Vermont’s first creameries. The successful creamery made home churned butter nearly obsolete. At one time the creamery produced nearly one ton of butter a day!
It wasn’t until 1945 that the property was first operated as an Inn and has continued to the present. For almost 2 centuries, the tradition of service to the community and the tradition of hospitality in the heart of Stowe continues.
Legend has it that it was originally a stand up Irish bar built in approximately 1907. We have chosen to honor U.S. Grant, America’s greatest General, past President, and avid whiskey drinker as he was entombed adjacent to this historic bar.
It was found in an old warehouse basement on Harlem’s 131st Street, highly distressed and in numerous pieces. It was carried back to the Stowe Inn, where it was then carefully restored and installed by local craftsmen, Dan Moody, Dave King and Brian O’Toole in 2003.
