The Cook House, under its present management, has had its interior greatly improved, and now that its present enterprising manager is pleasing the traveling public .so much, it may interest some of our readers to see the Cook House as it was in the olden times. It was located on the same spot as the present Cook House. When the present house was built it was moved across Fourth avenue and stood for some years nearly opposite Green's livery stable and was torn down only a few months ago. It will be noticed that it bears little resemblance to the present rather imposing looking structure, and yet in its day it was a very good hotel. Solon Cook, the founder of the Cook House, carne to this city in 1830, six years after the first settlers arrived, and for thirtyseven years was landlord of the Cook House.
