History[edit | edit source]

The hotel was near the Kirk's Resevoir as described in 1871:

Perch fishing at Kirk’s dam is now a favorite pastime with holders of permits to angle for the fish there. As a pleasant picnic resort Kirk’s is now very popular, and the little groups of anglers who go out there taste the cool liquors at the Fellmongers’ Hotel, and then ply the line with various success, speak in raptures of the delights of the excursions. There is one medico who is a mighty perch hunter, and his piscatorial achievements are a caution to less expert hands.[3]
