Additions, Renovations, and Remodels

The Aberdeen Inn has undergone several changes to its structure throughout the years. These include the following:

  • The original front door was moved to its current location.
  • The backdoor in the southwest corner of today’s tavern was uncovered during construction in 1995.
  • To bring plumbing indoors, the bathroom near the old entry door and the bath for the Aberdeen Suite were added sometime in the early 1900s.
  • The second bedroom originally exited the old stairs to the left, but the doorway was closed when the inn was constructed.
  • The 18” thick masonry wall between the second bedroom and the master’s bedroom was cut to make way for the addition of French doors to the suite.
  • A second story was added over the original cook kitchen, which functions as the tavern today. This adjoins the second bedroom through a double door.
  • At least two subsequent westward expansions created the current kitchen, allowing the original cook kitchen to be remodeled into a dining room.
  • After the opening of the inn, the dining room was expanded toward the east, doubling its size.
