The historic Grant House Hotel & Eatery in Rush City has closed its doors.
The hotel was opened in the late 1800s when the railroad line between Duluth and Minneapolis was completed. The Grant House burned to the ground and was rebuilt in the summer of 1896.
The building changed hands numerous times before being purchased by Barbara Johnson in 2012. Johnson operated the Grant House Hotel & Eatery until it closed over the weekend.
In a post to social media, Johnson said, "Devastating illness and lack of business has forced us to close the doors of The Grant House Hotel and Eatery. We are heartbroken. We want to thank our employees, friends and patrons. You will be in our hearts forever. Goodbye Rush City."
