In 1841, Phillip Sheffer bought from William Heathcote, the land on both sides of Main Street from Church Street to the Railroad crossing. In 1858, Sheffer sold the property at 45-55 Main Street, then called the tavern lot, to George Moessinger, who built the Cold Spring Hotel, a three-story structure with a full balcony. The hotel took its name from a spring of water located in the courtyard. In the 1890's the hotel had thirty rooms and offered patrons electricity. The hotel operated under the name Hotel Glen from the early 1900's until March 1927. At this time George W. and Harry C. Geiple bought the hotel and the house next door. They contracted with M. L. McMillan of Glen Rock to demolish the buildings and build this building which was opened in 1928 as a furniture store and mortuary. The present funeral home was added in 1955.
