Posted on 07 October 2014

At first glance, it may be hard to believe that Baron’s Cove Inn on West Water Street had a storied past as a local meeting spot and watering hole.

But Curtis Bashaw is intrigued by the history of Baron’s Cove and he’s embracing the property’s past to chart the inn’s course for the future.
