Arlington Hotel is a historic hotel located at Narrowsburg in Sullivan County, New York. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places on March 31, 1983.[1]

History and features[edit]

The Arlington Hotel was built in 1894. It was initially operated by J.G. Gutheil.[2]

During the 1890s, the hotel accommodated adventurers and explorers including J. Wallace Hoff of Delaware who later spoke highly of the hospitality and attractive waitresses.[3]

During the 1920s, businessman George Oellrich bought the hotel for use as a general store.[4]

The hotel is a four story frame structure, five bays wide and three bays deep. The upper three stories are covered in clapboard and the first floor in modern wood siding and permastone. It features a second story porch that spans the south facade.[5]

Delaware Arts Center[edit]

The building now serves as the Delaware Arts Center, operated by the Delaware Valley Arts Alliance.[3] The Center features the Alliance Gallery and offers classes and workshops in the arts and literature.

The Alliance also operates the nearby Tusten Theater, which presents concerts, digital media events and other presentations.
