Edwin Manning, the contractor for the Van Buren County Courthouse, built this structure for himself. It originally consisted of his own general store together with a bank. In 1894 he added a second floor and remodeled the building into a hotel. The first two floors of the building open onto a two-story porch; above, a series of small gabled dormers puncture the roof. The wide porch dominates the building, and its detailing has elements of the Eastlake style.
