The Zimmer Hotel, building #1 at 144 Old McHenry Road, was originally the residence of Long Grove's first Smithy, Daniel Rose. When the Zimmer family acquired it in 1871, they converted it into a hotel. This former ten-room hotel has changed little over the years, retaining much of its original Victorian trim on the porch and windows. Annexed with additions to the hotel was one of the carriage sheds from the Long Grove Church. Looking back towards the crossroads, you'll notice a large green lot with a flagpole. Our next stop is building #3, the Ritzenthaler Farmhouse. Press NEXT STOP when you're ready to learn about this old structure.
