The Orford Hotel originally occupied this Main Street landmark back in 1894. It featured a two-story amusement hall along with a banquet hall that seated 200. On August 1st of this year, 2007, this structure will celebrate its 113th birthday. In the 1920's Quinn's Pharmacy and Manchester Plumbing & Supply occupied the ground floor businesses.
The Marlow family would buy this building in 1924, moving from the one story brick structure on the north side of Brainard Place, now a bike shop.
