The St. James Hotel

A reference to the St. James Hotel now 156 years old... (NW Corner of Highways 7 & 14)

"The travelling public are respectfully informed that a new stone hotel has been recently opened at The Marmora Iron Works,  very conveniently situated at the terminus of the new macadamized road from Belleville,  and close to the Iron Furnaces which are now in active operation.
To the sportsman this offers a new field,  the number of wild fowl on Crowe Lake and Belmont Lakes,  the excellent fishing,  and the herds of deer,  a quantity of which have been lately sent to the New York Market,  offer unusual attraction not often found together."

Toronto Globe, September 24, 1858
