In 1854, the town of Mantorville was incorporated. During this same year, four years before Minnesota became a state, John Hubbell constructed the first Hubbell House. The original Hotel, a 16 x 24-foot log structure, was the only building in town having a double roof, thereby allowing room in the chamber for guests.
In 1946, Paul Pappas purchased the Hubbell House and at that time established the policy of providing you with excellent food and served in an atmosphere that has changed but little since 1854. Paul’s son, Don, assumed control of the restaurant and in January 2022, Joe Powers and his family took on ownership, ensuring the Hubbell House lives on for generations to come.
