Cameron Hotel

CAMERON HOTEL; D. W. Matthis, proprietor. One of the important features to commercial travelers, at the present day and age, is as to which are the best hotels on their respective routes. Among those that are pre-eminent, and have attained a wide and well merited reputation, is the above named hotel. The structure was erected by Samuel Matthis, and was opened to the public as a hotel soon after. The urbane proprietor, D. W. Matthis, or Watt, as he is familiarly called, has become noted as a caterer, and knows the wants of" ye" weary and hungry traveler. The hotel is a three story brick, conveniently arranged on the most improved plans, and complete in all its appointments. His trade has been steady, and constantly on the increase, and in the season of 1881 attained such a magnitude, that necessitated his adding an additional number of rooms, to meet the increasing patronage. Watt, by his affability and genial demeanor, makes his guests perfectly at home.
