Inscription. This building was constructed in 1850 by John Remaley; whose grandfather Ambrose was an original settler to the area. Issued a liquor license in 1851 the building was originally called Remaley House, and later known as The Slatington Hotel. Edward B. Neff purchased the business in 1869, and operated the hotel for 40 years. Neff was a descendant of Ulich Neff, patriarch of the local Neff families who emigrated from Switzerland. The business included a hotel, livery, and a barroom, which was located in the basement. The Neff House was Slatington's oldest licensed barroom until operations ceased in 1989. The building continues its long tradition by currently functioning as a hotel/rooming house.
