The Samuel Aurand House was constructed around 1825 as the Samuel Aurand Publick House & Tavern. This 2 ½ story, 6 bay, red brick structure known as The Samuel Aurand Hotel burned on February 19, 1839 during Court week when filled with guests. The hotel was rebuilt and had 14 fireplaces of which only 7 remain. Around the turn of the century, it was converted to one of the town’s general stores. The town post office was located in the rear of the building starting in 1897 off and on through 1960. The Showers family operated a general store from the mid 40’s until 1983 at which time it was leased to 3 successive storekeepers till 1994. At that time it was converted to the elegant Bed & Breakfast it is today. It hosts 4 beautifully appointed rooms, a 2 bedroom suite with galley kitchen and an antique & craft co-op shoppe located on the first floor.
