A Brief History of the Inn

The Weston Steamboat Inn is a Federalist style home built by riverboat Captain R.N. Traver in 1845. Captain Traver was known as a master navigator of the "Mighty Mo" and docked many a steamboat at the Port of Weston. He had two daughters, one of whom was very artistic and spent most of her days in a wheelchair creating charcoal and oil paintings. The only one remaining can be seen on the fireplace hearth of the Sitting Room depicting boats sailing on the waters. 

When the steamboat era ended in the late 1800s, the home was owned by Mr. Julius Rumple, a prominent Weston business man, and later, by the Bless family who owned and operated Weston's only newspaper, "Weston Chronicle." Over time, the home fell into disrepair and was begging for some love.

The Inn Today

From 2014 to the present, the home was rebuilt to it's former glory. While maintaining the original brick structure and much of the woodwork, the antebellum home now boasts the charm of the pre-civil war era with all the modern conveniences of today. Come experience the history and charm of Weston Steamboat Inn.
