Reader Ric Stevenson wonders if anyone remembers the Upland Inn, a restaurant and boarding house once owned by his aunt and uncle.
“The Inn was built around 1901 and was first used as a boarding house. In the ’60s it became very popular as a fine family dining restaurant. As a kid I spent a lot of fun times there with my cousin and ate some great food,” Stevenson writes.
Bill and Barbara Vallon, his aunt and uncle, owned it in the ’60s. The inn, located on Ninth Street, burned down.
Anyone able to help?
