    From the NRHP nomination for the Waterville Village Historic District – 1986:
    Westover’s Hotel/Central House, c. 1840, contributing, 790 Route 109
    (Identified on the 1859 Walling map as “R. Herren” and on the 1879 Beers map as “Robt. Darah”)
    A long, narrow structure consisting of three main parts. The central section is a two-and-a-half story, gable-front, vernacular style building with a two-tiered piazza. The piazza, sheltered by a shed roof, has chamfered posts and a diamond lattice balustrade on each level. The front gable has two nine light windows. Windows are 2/2 double hung sash on the first level and 9/6 double hung sash on the second level, with a central paneled door leading to the upper piazza. Projecting to the west is a two-story, side gabled wing with two large bays; one is open and the other has a large sliding door on a metal track. Windows on the second level are 12/8 double hung sash, and the second floor is a ballroom that reportedly has a sprung dance floor. A twentieth century foundation is made of stone-faced concrete block. Projecting to the east is a two-story, side gabled wing. The first story has an entry door in the first bay, a large fixed window, and a single 9/6 double-hung window. The second story has four evenly spaced, nine-light windows. The walls of each section are wood clapboard and the roofing is corrugated metal.
    Local millwright Robert Herron owned this building in the 1850s, and sold it to Lydia Wellington in 1856. In 1865 Robert Darrah purchased the building from J.B. & Sarah Westover, who had operated it as “Westover’s Hotel.” Darrah made extensive repairs to the building and operated it as the “Central House” with his wife, Mary, and their son, Frederick.
