The Oldest Hotel In The Country Is Only 2 Hours From NYC
If you were to hop on a silly little road trip to Rhinebeck, NY, you’d not only discover why it’s one of the most beautiful small towns near NYC, but you’d also find that it’s home to the oldest hotel in the country! Beekman Arms has been welcoming guests to take a load off and stay a night since before the Revolutionary War. Operating continuously since 1766, everyone from historical figures and politicians to celebrities have stayed at this Hudson Valley hotel. Beekman Arms was first established in 1704 by William Traphagen as a tavern known as Traphagen Tavern. At the time Rhinebeck (referred to back then as Ryn Beck) was a small settlement carved out of a forested area by the Sepasco Native Americans. The Beekman Arms was added to the original tavern in 1766, named after the Beekman family–back then, Judge Henry Beekman was widely among the original British Crown land owners in the Hudson Valley–and it’s been operating ever since!

Turning Back the Pages
No end of speculation and alarm has been caused by the disappearance of Lawrence Travis who has been employed at Martin’s Garage. He seemingly has dropped completely out of sight and no trace of his whereabouts has been learned. On Feb. 16 he left Martin’s Garage in a Star car with a couple of friends, and a short time later returned to Lakeville parting with his companions. He again started out in the car stating he was going to the barber shop. From that time on nothing whatever has been seen of him. Mr. Martin has employed the young man for the past four years and speaks very highly of him, stating that he is more worried about the boy than the missing car. The disappearance of the lad is very strange in many ways, chiefly in the fact that absolutely no trace of the boy or the car has been found. State Police have taken up the case.
