Beck's Hotel

Beck's Hotel

May 29, 2004

Every few years someone opens up the restaurant at Beck's Hotel at the corner of Scenic and Main Streets. It quickly closes. The building was built in less than sixty days after a fire destroyed most of the block in 1897. It was originally called the New Boyd House after its proprietor, Captain Boyd. I don't know when John Beck bought the place or how long he ran it.
