A brief history: The LeClerc House was established in 1833 on land purchased from Nicholas Longworth. The hotel was operated until 1894. Formerly known as the Franklin House, Robert LeClerc tore down the frame structure in 1850 and had a three-story building constructed. The Swiss Inn was destroyed by fire August 11, 1943. Mrs. Minnie Downey, who had owned the business for 18 years, decided not to rebuild. The new Swiss Inn opened the week of March 27, 1947 with modern rooms and bathrooms and a coffee shop.
