History of the Spicer-Millard HouseThe Red Brick Inn was built in 1819 and it is believed to have been a summer residence for Judge Brown. The building is listed on both the State and National Registers of Historic Places, as the Spicer-Millard House. According to the researchers, the building is considered one of the finest examples of Federal Style Architecture in Yates County.
This residence also has a close connection to the Lost Resort of Crystal Valley, a series of grand hotels and spas that were famous throughout the East from 1866 to 1900. A mineral spring was discovered which was thought to have healing properties. Benson H. Smith, who owned the home in 1867, became a partner in the Crystal Spring Hotel. People would come to the hotel and adjoining spa to relax and rejuvenate. We believe that the same atmosphere that appealed to patrons in the mid-1800's is carried over to the Red Brick Inn today.
