Additional Info


The Inn

was a boarding house at the turn of the century.

We like to imagine that Great Lake mariners & Singapore lumbermen stayed here then.

At one time the Inn was the private residence known as the "Jackson House" locally -- the house was open to the Butler St. town parks then. In the 1980's Art Galleries were added to the Water Street side of the property.

In 1994 Linda & Louie Brooks became the owners and the house was restored to its original state to become the marvelous IVY INN.
