Mid-20th Century: A Transitional Period

Allen Treadway retired in 1945, having served in Congress for 33 years. He died in 1947, and his son Heaton inherited The Red Lion Inn. In 1955 Heaton sold the Red Lion Inn to Byrne Bauer, ending his family’s 90-year ownership of the establishment. Bauer undertook an extensive redecoration of the Inn and tried to keep the hostelry open year-round in the winter of 1956 – 57, a costly endeavor that ultimately resulted in the deed reverting to Heaton Treadway.

In 1960, Treadway sold the Red Lion Inn to Robert Wheeler, who remodeled the stately hostelry as a three-story “Motor Lodge” and added a swimming pool. During that tumultuous era, the Inn foundered, and by 1968 it was slated for destruction, to be replaced by a gas station.
