In December of 1918, the Vermilion Village Board of Education appointed a library board of trustees. The newly appointed trustees immediately began putting aside monies toward a building fund.
By 1934, trustees felt they had sufficient funds to begin construction of a building. Actual construction began in January 1935 on 691 Grand Street in downtown Vermilion. The library resided at that location until 1958. Until 1998, that building was home to the Vermilion Police Station.
This is a one of a kind unique stay in Vermilion. An Old Historic Library 1935 that was converted in a police station and Jail. Now we can share this with you as it becomes the next landmark in Vermilion History. Everything inside the Jails are Authentic and Original. The entrance door shown below is from the first Jail in downtown Vermilion

We have always pondered what to do with the Jail area and have up to this point only used it as storage. After many crazy ideas we finaly decided what a better place to have a bed and breakfast that will be private and on a high end scale. We will continue as our lives move forward in new directions and have many more great things to come and share including this venture.
