The Geraldton Hotel, originally named the Morin Hotel, was located at the corner of First Avenue North and Third Street North -- facing the C.N.R. tracks. W. Foster ("Foss") Draper was brought in from Sudbury as manager in late 1934. Originally the hotel had its own water tank, which was removed when the community tank was set in place and the related water lines were installed. The hotel was the location of the Geraldton "Hotel Grill" and the "Service Barber Shop" which was originally owned/operated by Nelson ("Nels.") Barber. -- Information via .
