Duneland History The Central House Hotel: This postcard shows the Central House Hotel on the southwest corner of Broadway and Second St. in Chesterton about 1920. The handprinted notation says C.E. Carlson, Propr. The white building with a steeple behind the hotel is the early Methodist Episcopal Church which was located next to the Chesterton Grade School on Indiana Ave. The sign over the hotel door to the right says Furnished * Rooms * Restaurant. Later the building was Eschenbach’s Hotel and Restaurant. Both automobiles and a horse and buggy are visible on the street.
