Sinclair House (Bethlehem, New Hampshire), Register, 1875-1876.
This guest register book contains the names and dates of visitors to the Sinclair House hotel from January 1875 through September 1876. The Sinclair House was built by John H. Sinclair in 1857. It was expanded numerous times, the original building being a tavern with ten rooms. In 1870 Sinclair sold the house to J.A. Durgin and the hotel eventually expanded to a capacity of 300. The register, records daily names of overnight visitors, their residence, room number at the hotel, and whether they arrived with a horse. On each facing page of the register is a sheet of advertisements.
