Description:
The Manchester Hotel was located on the southeast corner of Ridge and Manitou Roads. By 1916, it was known as The Winslow Hotel and was the site of a catastrophic acetylene gas explosion. Newspaper reports state that the force of the explosion was felt a mile away. In the 1910's, owner O.M. Winslow hosted fox and coon chases, clam bakes and auctions at the hotel. This is how the hotel appeared in the 1880's.
