History & Gallery
Peek into our rooms and our past
“Why are there two dates on the cornerstone?’’ is a question we asked and heard asked many times
when the thought to convert the old “JC Penny” into a hotel was first bouncing around. It turns
out the building which is now the Hotel Sturgis, has an interesting past. The original building,
known as Benevolent Hall, was built in 1892. The main floor was a retail store and store room
while the second floor served as a meeting place for lodges and “secret orders.” The Benevolent
Hall succumbed to a fire in March of 1906 and was torn down. The new cornerstone for the
Benevolent Hall was laid later in 1906. Since completed it has been home to a hardware store, a
JC Penny, and C & D Sales, and now the Hotel Sturgis.
