Inscription
Constructed soon after the Detroit and Milwaukee Railroad reached town in 1855, this hotel has been a favorite resting and dining spot for over a century. It was said in 1883 that the guests were "entertained in a style unsurpassed in many large cities." The interior decor of the hotel is much as it was at the turn of the century. However, the exterior was altered by the destruction of the front porch in 1904 by a team of runaway horses. The Fenton House is one of the oldest hotels in continuous operation in Michigan.
