Join us for a very special celebration as we celebrate Grand Hotel’s 130th Anniversary. Grand Hotel opened it’s doors on July, 10, 1887. In 1933 W. Stewart Woodfill, the Uncle of R.D. Musser, Jr purchased the hotel with sole ownership. Then in 1979 after working for his uncle since 1951, R.D. Musser, Jr. purchased the hotel, and in 1989 R.D. Musser, Jr’s son, Dan Musser, III became President and is currently the third generation family member to own and operate Grand Hotel. During this weekend you will enjoy a special history presentation by Bob Tagatz, Grand Hotel Historian and Concierge followed by a question and answer session with Dan Musser, III to find out more about the family’s history over the last 130 years. Both Friday and Saturday you will enjoy cocktail receptions followed by a five-course dinner in the Main Dining Room and then a musical performance on Saturday evening at the Jockey Club by Dave Bennett.
