    So…they were at 212 5th street but also had rooms on Central? Quite the enterprise!

      (does some googling) — 23 rooms, .4 acre footprint, bulldozed and turned into 6 houses. I can see those six identical (from Google Satellite view) houses stretching from 212 to Central. B&B conjures up a house with a few spare bedrooms in my mind, should’ve paid more attention to the “inn” part.

        Don’t feel bad — I didn’t really share much information. There’s so much more to research about the inn, but that’s another project on the list.
