876 N. Mill Street. Built Circa 1887 by George and Eva Streng who were German Immigrants. The Streng family were involved in the hospitality business here in Plymouth and owned the Hotel which used to be right next door (North side). In 1924 this home and the hotel next door were purchased by Frank Sambrone and stayed in the Sambrone family for several years. The Hotel Victor was later known as the Anderine Hotel, The Nelson Hotel and the Old village Inn. The hotel burned down in the 1980’s. This historic home is still standing strong and adds to the charm of old village. This home has most recently served as a multi-family home (3 apartments). We look forward to see this home continue to be a great part of our community.

    Actually the fire (probably 1983) burned the upper level of the hotel, leaving most of the structure intact. The hotel had a center hallway that ran front to back. My memory is it had HUGE 24″ square roof beams that ran downhill from the front to the back. The building was not damaged beyond reasonable repair but the City wanted it torn down as it was known as a “flop house” and a murder had occurred there some time in the early 80’s I believe. It was torn down in 1984 or 1985, leaving an empty lot that sat for about 15 years until a new office / warehouse building was erected. Mrs Sambrone lived at 876 N. Mill until the late 1990’s, it was then sold to local attorney John Thomas who had it re-sided and a wrap around porch installed. Note the replacement porch posts are not part of the railing, a mistake made by the carpenter. The original fish scale shingles and siding were covered over in vinyl siding.
