At the end of the 19th century, circa 1880, The Arlington Hotel opened at Stop 22 on the Tro and New England Railway. Since that time, the property has continuously operated as a Tavern or Restaurant. Menus of those times reflected the regions German heritage. The Property served as a fashionable “Speakeasy” for adventurous city dwellers vacationing at nearby lakes. Local lore has it that notorious Legs Diamond and several of his infamous cohorts made several stops during the freewheeling and colorful bootleg whiskey era. In 1979, The Property was operated as the Old Journey’s End a welcome haven for travelers.
At the start of the new century, 2000, the property was renovated by Carol and Edward Murray as “The Arlington House” -Fine American Grill. Edward and Carol hope the renovations made capture the feel of the early 1900′s. Victorian floral wall prints, chair rails, restored hardwood floors and slate floors complement an original chandelier, wall sconces and mirrors which reflect that time period.
