Property History
Early 1800s - Built for Joseph Weeks, Gilman’s Tavern, a colonial stagecoach tavern, consisted of the main Greek Revival-style building and neighboring barn. Later, it was known as Dole’s Tavern. Canaan was an important stop on the Underground Railroad in the 1800s.

Early 1900s - Around 1890, the Weeks family gave the property to their son William Hinckley, who turned the property into a popular New England summer destination called the Hotel Lucerne. From the 1890s to the early 1900s, under various proprietors, the Hotel Lucerne was expanded to its current footprint: over twenty guestrooms, two large parlors, a wrap-around porch, grounds for tennis, croquet, and golf, and swimming and boat access to Canaan Street Lake on the property’s edge.

In Hotel Lucerne’s heyday, it was a popular summer vacation destination and stop along the carriage route from Boston to Montreal.

1940s - In the 1940s, the hotel was converted into the first campus of the Cardigan Mountain School (an all-boys day prep school). From the 1970s to 1999, it was the campus of Canaan College, and tiny liberal arts college.

Today - In recent years, the Historic 532 Canaan Street has served as a private residence.
