It was claimed in a 1946 article the 20 room Cedar Inn was a "century old" at that time. I don't know about that as I doubt it was built in 1846. It went up for sale in 1917 so it did go back a long way. The Inn was used as a school for a time in the 1930's even though it was still unheated. I found a nice display ad from 1938 advertising the accommodations. I also found an ad from 1939 advertising the Sunday dinners.
By 1946 it was being modernized by Fred Esterline who had purchased the Inn from Mrs. Ann Boyd. That article also indicates it was once used to put on plays for the local people. It was still going in the late 1950's for both rooms and meals. By 1973, it was being referred to in the past tense by the local papers. My best guess on the location is on the aerial photo below. I am using the address of the current community library (as of 2022) as I believe it was the lot just east of the library. There is a grassy area in the middle of a road that did not exist when the Inn stood on the lot. I believe that to be the location based on the historical photos.
