Now known as Kelly’s Westport Inn, the Ewing-Boone Building was completed in 1851 and sold to Albert Gallatin Boone (grandson of Daniel Boone) in January of 1854. After being sold to the Wiedenmann Family in 1904, the building has remained in the family’s possession. The building has been leased to Kelly’s since the mid-1930s. The Ewing-Boone Building is also one of two buildings on the National Register in Westport.
