National House Inn Marshall Michigan

Legend of the National House Inn,
Marshall Michigan - Print #61

The National House Inn, originally coined Mann’s Hotel by the villagers, formally opened on New Years Eve of 1836. The celebration marked the first ball held in Marshall. Prentiss S. Hewitt, a Marshall lawyer was one of the managers of the affair. It seems that this first celebration was only the beginning, as the following April a “Soiree De Dansante” was held (the announcements printed in stylish French) and on July 4, 1836, Independence Day was celebrated. According to an old account, “the table was graced with roast pigs set every eight feet, flanked front and rear with wine bottles.”

These celebrations continued for almost twenty years until they ended 1855. In 1837, Andrew Mann leased his hotel to Volney S. Allcott who renamed it the National House. It became the rallying point of the Lower Village and headquarters for the Democratic Party. The stagecoaches stopped at the hotel and the horse barns were located on the south side of the hotel. Today, there is a bed & breakfast named National House Inn in the original building, serving the same basic purpose as the original Mann’s Hotel.
