THE MOORE HOUSE. There is nothing that claims the attention of the
outside world to a town so much as a good up-to-date hotel. Williamstown
has such a place in the Moore House. Built in 1898, its doors were opened
to the public December 12, of that year. The Moore House is a frame
building, three stories high, with many beautiful and commodious rooms,
heated with a hot air furnace, and is complete in every detail. Before
the Moore House was established drummers gave this place a wide berth, but
since its establishment the traveling men who weekly invest Williamstown
find a pleasant and comfortable stopping place there. Many a drummer, who
formerly made it a rule to drive over to Dry Ridge or Corinth, rather than
spend a night in Williamstown, now makes it a rule to get there for the
night. Besides the traveling public there are several regular guests at
the hotel who make it their home throughout the year. The rooms are clean
and spotless, and the beds are soft and comfortable.
The culinary department of the hotel is in charge of Mr. Moore's
excellent wife and her mother, Mrs. George Rednower, who superintend the
cooking and see that everything is just as it should be. Meals are served
on the American plan, and the best that can be found in the market is
always to be had for the asking. Rates of board are $2 a day for the
transient guest, while a special rate is given those who remain a week or
more at a time. Mr. Moore was the first and only hotel keeper in
Williamstown to place for use before the public a hack of the omnibus
style. This hack meets all trains at the station, and all guests of the
house are given free use of it. In connection with the hotel Mr. Moore
runs a first class livery and feed stable, in which are kept a number of
handsome traps, buggies and carriages, and also a splendid equipment of
driving and saddle horses, which he hires or rents to all who may desire
them. He is willing at any and all times to put himself out to give a
customer comfort and good treatment.
Mr. Moore comes of prolific stock. He was born March 29, 1863, and
is the son of J. T. Moore, who was the father of 14 children, eight boys
and six girls, eight of whom are yet living. He was born and reared in
Pendleton county. In religion he is a Baptist and politics a Democrat.
He was married in January, 1882, to Miss Georgiana Rednower, a very
handsome and most excellent lady, and the daughter of G. W. Rednower, of
this city. Three children have blessed their union, only one of whom
survives. Prior to his coming to Williamstown he was a farmer, but he
has proven himself and excellent land-lord in every particular.
