The Abeling Hotel was originally known as the Mountain View
House. It was build by Edward Rockwell. Mr. Rockwell sold the
business to Wallace Bloss another prominent businessmen in area.
Around 1920, Fred and Frances Abeling came to the valley from
Canajoharie, New York. Mr Abeling had been in the United State
Army during the Mexican Campaign and World War I. Fred was one
of the surveyors for the building of the Conklingville Dam. He
an his wife settled in Day Centre where they bought the hotel
and store. The hotel became a gathering place for both natives
and out-off -towners because of the many interesting and amusing
events that took place. There was seldom a dull moment at the
Abelings' Hotel. When the valley was flooded, the hotel was moved
up from the waters' edge, but the store was left to become yet
another foundation under water.
