Makonikey, site of the famous old hotel which was open only for a season some forty years ago, is to be put upon the market by the present owners, Thomas F. Neelon and Roger W. Higgins. Surveyors are now at work laying out lots and streets, in order to have sites ready for building operations next spring. The old hotel will be torn down.


Vale of Disappointments - so might be called the beautiful spot which is known by the name of Makoniky today, for nowhere on the Vineyard is any place where such a number of enterprises have been established only to fail.


Makoniky Inn, is the name of the new hotel to be erected on that portion of the Island locally known as Makoniky heights. The architects of this structure are Messrs. McKenzie & Smith of 50 Bromfield street, Boston.
