The European

Around 1910, the European opened, having been purchased by A.R. Edwards and renamed. Formerly, the Kingstown Road hotel was named the Metatoxet (built by John H. Caswell in 1866 – 87), and was later, around 1920, purchased by Mr. and Mrs. George Wood and renamed the Beachwood. The Beachwood was operated successfully until 1936 when the Woods retired. A fire destroyed the hotel in 1958.
