According to the Otsego County NY USGenWeb Site:

“About 1822 William V. White of Mass. came to town, purchased the hotel of John Bliven, ran the tavern successfully for several years.

He considered the old house insufficient for his business, consequently he erected the large stone building in 1828. He was successful in business after he settled in his new Hotel. He continued the hotel business until 1836, when he sold it to John & Tompkins Tanner of Oneonta.

They continued the business one year & sold to James B. Gilbert & he abandoned the hotel & gave his attention to farming.”

    What a beautiful setting! I’d be a little concerned about traffic speed; would have to look into the speed limit and use of the street. I bet this beautiful house would make a good venue for writers’ retreats.
