Description of Historic Site:  After the fire of the Ottawa Hotel in 1923, Holland needed a hotel.  A.H. Landwehr, the owner of Holland Furnace Company, spearheaded the efforts.  Realty bonds were sold to raise the money for the hotel.  Construction began in April 1924 and completed in April 1925.  Most of the furnishings were locally purchased and most of the contractors were locally sourced.
