Lovejoys Hotel
By James Middleton
    Travelers in the 1860s coming to Belvidere from
Rockford and the west or from Elgin or Chicago to the east
had options where to stay for the night. In that era, the most
popular modes of transportation were horse-drawn wagon
or carriage. Some chose to saddle their horse and ride,
while others sought a more comfortable mode of transport
via stagecoach. By 1859, the Chicago and Northwestern
Railway had begun to traverse the plains from Chicago west
through Elgin, Belvidere, and Rockford to Dubuque.
    Of course, as is the case today, so was the economic reality
a century or more ago; accommodations varied from town to
town and the quality of amenities varied from hotel to hotel
within a village. In Belvidere in the middle to late 1860s
there were three options for overnight accommodations.
The first was The Belvidere House that was opened in 1835,
soon after the village was begun. Another option was the
Julien House if the traveler’s purse was fat and finally, the
last option was Lovejoys Hotel.
    Hotel accommodations outside major cities were
haphazard at best.         Little was planned besides the
construction of the hotel itself. Services other than a bed
were difficult to find, such as clean sheets, or sheets at all.
If one was staying in a small town and wanted something to
eat, the hotel owner would consult his wife and find what
leftovers remained from their evening supper.
    For example, the first hotel, The Belvidere House, was
described as a “small log house.” The location of that
first hostelry was at the Kishwaukee River on South State
Street. Years later, Lovejoys Hotel was erected as a form of
“friendly” competition for Mr. Doty who ran The Belvidere
House.
    Lovejoys Hotel was far enough apart from The Belvidere
House so as not to be confused but close enough to obtain
their spillover of customer who did not prefer a “small log
house” for an overnight stay. A year after Mr. Doty built
the first hotel from trees he felled himself, he built a larger
hotel, still using logs rather than split boards. He reserved
the expense for the split wood to have plank floors in the
hotel that were said to have been graced with rugs.
    Each of the Belvidere hotels was separated from the other
in terms of amenities and the services offered. Lovejoys,
for example, was found nearer to the downtown South State
Street bars. The advantage to that location over the site
where Mr. Doty conducted his business was the proximity
to the downtown bars and “night spots.”
    In the 1860s in smaller American towns, the extent of the
“nightlife” was to enter a building and buy liquor to quench
one’s thirst. Quenching one’s thirst was an important
service to find if one travelled on a “milk run” stagecoach or
train from Chicago or further east and decided to stop at the
Julien House or Lovejoys Hotel for the night. One could get
very thirsty riding across unpaved roads in a stagecoach or
bouncing over rails for hours on end.
    The premier hotel in Belvidere of the age was the Julien
House. This was a brick hotel three stories tall. The hotel
was built on South State Street at the old site of Main Street.
Legend and stories abound that the Julien House was where
you could find clean sheets and more. As was the case at
                                                                    “State of the Community” Addressed in Marengo
