Days of Peace and Rest at The Glenwood
By Those Who Knew

both editions, 1907

These booklets each measure 6" x 4 5/8" and have 18 numbered pages. The bottom one was commissioned by Chester F. Hardon, the Eastern Representative for Carisa Chemical Company of Boston Mass.
 The Glenwood Mission Inn was developed from the Glenwood Tavern, owned by Captain Christopher Columbus Miller, who moved to Riverside in 1874 to survey land for the Gage Canal, which brought water to Riverside. His son Frank Augustus Miller, 1857 - 1935 developed a lasting interest in culture and the arts and took over the expansion of the Inn. Over the years he embellished and expanded it into a unique resort known all over the world. It has played host to numerous movie stars, musicians and heads of state. The Reagan's honeymooned there, the Nixon's were married on its grounds. Teddy Roosevelt planted a tree in its courtyard, and a special chair built for 300 pound William Howard Taft when he visited is still in the Inn's collection.
