Sea Gull Inn Yesterday and Today

George Switzer was born in Kingston, Ontario, Canada in 1838 and came to San Francisco with his brother John in the early 1860s.

In 1870, George married Elizabeth Hopkins and in 1871 they bought ranch property in Westport, a town 25 miles north of Mendocino. George sold the ranch in 1876 and they moved to Mendocino, and with Alex W. Boyd bought the livery stable on Lansing Street from W.H. Kelley.

In the 1900s the house was sold to the Asa Bishops, then to a Mrs. Honeywell who in 1960 sold to the Martin Halls. The Halls operated it as an inn in the 1960s.

They sold it to Anita Klaus, and she in turn sold it to David and Cathy Jones and Marlene McIntyre in 1984. In 1986 David and Cathy Jones sold their share to Marlene.

In June of 2007, Marlene sold to Jim and Ayla Douglas (pictured here) who had been guests at the Inn since 1992.
