From 1900 until about 1965, The Eagle Hotel (as depicted here) presided over the corner in the middle of the Village of New Berlin, NY. Although the dome and 3rd floor were removed in 1965, and then the rest of the building was demolished in 1983, its memory lives on.
This product is an exquisitely detailed miniature of the former Eagle Hotel as it looked in the early 60s. Note all of the detail including the name over the door, the sign, the dome, the dormers, windows, railings, store fronts on the right and, of course, the eagle itself on top of the dome. If you were around New Berlin in the 50s or 60s, this is the building that you remember.

The former Eagle Hotel
1 North Main Street
New Berlin NY 13411
During the 1800s, hotels were a common sight in small towns, including New Berlin. A number of different hotels were located at this particular site including the Gates Hotel, the Williams House, the Gaskin House and the ‘Old’ Eagle Hotel. The latter, the first opera house and most of the rest of the block burned in 1899. This is the ‘New’ Eagle Hotel, built in 1900 by Charles L Banks at the same location. The ‘New’ Eagle passed through a number of different owners over the subsequent years. The third floor and dome succumbed to physical deterioration and were removed during the mid-1960s. The remaining building succumbed to economic deterioration, was sold and then demolished about 1983. Many of us remember ‘The Eagle’ with fond memories for its great pizza.
