The Annabel Lee Bed & Breakfast Inn was built in 1889, for Elizabeth Allen by Hiriam Leonard. The frame building is an interesting example of the Victorian "castle." Ms. Allen was the daughter of Samuel P. Allen who is often times referred to as "one of the most notable figures in the early newspaper history in the Genesee Valley" and established his own paper known as the Livingston Republican.
Prior thereto in approximately 1803, there were two buildings on the site. One was used as a home and the other as a hat shop. Thereafter, the original building on the Allen property was operated as Zadok Manley's marble factory and home. The factory was moved to the back and used as a barn, which was later destroyed in a fire.
Today, the Annabel Lee Bed & Breakfast Inn has been lovingly restored with all the modern comforts without sacrificing the Victorian atmosphere.
