280 N. Main Street. Built in 1868 by E. Gottlieb Bode who was an immigrant born in Germany in 1821. Mr Bode originally built this as Bode’s Hotel in anticipation for the Railroads which came shortly after the hotel was constructed. When the Railroads came, this hotel was already standing, sitting along the side of the tracks ready to accommodate passengers who were traveling by steam engine. Having also served as a home, a place of worship, and a boarding house, in 1959 it was opened as Bode’s Corned Beef House which many of us can still enjoy today. Gottlieb and his wife are both buried at Plymouth’s Riverside cemetery.
