Summary

Walter and Mary Smith (shown here about 1890 with their daughter Ella) operated Clinton, Michigan's Eagle Tavern--renamed Smith's Hotel--from the late 1860s into the 1890s. Though this 1830s tavern's days as a bustling stagecoach stop were long past, the Smiths offered hospitality to the locals and to the fewer travelers who still passed through the rural village.
