Cheever’s House

Cheever’s House at 175 Stone St, South is #27 on the Town of Gananoque’s self guided tour. Its description there reads:
“This is one of the oldest hotels in Gananoque and was owned and operated by the McCarney family from 1885 to 1989 as the Provincial Hotel. It suffered serious interior fire damage in 2003 and was rebuilt in 2004. It currently operates as the Riverside Bar and Grill” 
(Copies of the tour are available at the Gananoque and 1000 Island Visitor Centre, 10 King East.)

Some additional interesting facts about the Cheevers House:
– Two generations of the Cheever’s family lived in this building while running the hotel.
– A 1869 ad said “the choicest wines, liquors and cigars always on hand”.
– This is a heritage designated building.
