At the corner of Mountain Avenue and Farren street, the Mountain House Hotel was built in 1910.  The hotel contained a bar, a dining room, a barbershop, and a large hall that was used for dances.  In the Great Influenza Epidemic of 1918, the Hotel was pressed into business as a hospital, as Portage was quarantined.

The Mountain house was demolished but the Historical Society has memorial replicas, hand painted, for sale to commemorate the Mountain House.
