The Omena Historical Society’s Putnam-Cloud Tower House Museum opened the season on Saturday, June 25, with a Community Open House from 12 noon to 5pm. A new exhibit was highlighted, “The Clovers Hotel/Manna House: From Build to Burn”.
While many Omena folks worked at the Clovers during its years of operation from 1898-1956 very few remain to tell of it. There are letters and photos that give us a glimpse of the charmed summer lives of the resort era guests. We have
descriptions, but no photos, of the sumptuous furnishings and interiors of the
several buildings. The Manna House years were altogether different….
Come and see our exhibit and learn the fascinating and largely untold story of the Clovers, and its transformation in the 1970’s to Manna House, as well as the eventual decline and controlled burn of this iconic building.
