Argos Inn Open: Interior Photos on the Web

September 26, 2013 // by Jason Henderson

Right next door to the Seneca Way Project, the Argos Inn (the former McCormick Cowdry House built in 1831) has opened-up for business (bar coming soon), and they’ve posted some interior shots on their Facebook Page: Opening Week Photos

I haven’t had a chance to peek inside yet, but the exterior is absolutely great- I particularly like the application of floor to header glass along the column-lined porches on both floors. Looks like a great repurpose and restoration project for a historic building.

We’re a bit late to the party on this one, but it’s quite a triumph of a project. The original building was started around 1831, and this renovation has been two years in the works to transform this building (the former Cowdry House) into a LEED-certified boutique hotel.

There’s even a Youtube video showing the original stone treads being replaced, and the Facebook page is packed with nice photos of the entire renovation.
