Notes
John Orr's Hotel, The Lakeview, built in 1893 At Edgington Station (Orrville
Inscriptions
Joe Hannon (owned 1906-1920) The Lakeview hotel in Orrville was situated at the corner of Orr Street and main Street (north-east side) In the picture the short side of the building faced south, the long side faced west. From the second floor it would have been possible to look westward and see Duck Lake and Maple Lake because the land had been cleared for farming throughout this area. The hotel was built in 1897-1898, replacing one that had burned down on this site. It was owned by various people, the last of whom was Joseph Hannon Sr. who operated it from about 1905 to about 1917. He rented it to Jim Lawson who operated it for two years. It was sold to Arthur Thompson in 1920. Part of it was demolished and part of it was moved and adapted to a private residence.
