In the 1880's, Frank Chandler, missionary and owner of Silver Lake, built a road from Goshen to the lake through Leicester Hollow and erected a beautiful 50-60 room hotel/seminary at this site. Until it was abandoned in 1919, the hotel- with its motto of "Godliness, Holiness and Cleanliness"- offered respite and religious instruction. The hotel burned to the ground aound 1940.

Also breakfast, due to necessity. We had to get rid of as much weight as possible so we wouldn't have to carry it out. It had to be finished.
