ALTAMONT – The historic Appel Inn has gotten a facelift.

All of its outbuildings have been painted from its traditional red to yellow.

It has changed the entire look and feel of the event hall and venue in Altamont.

The property originated in 1765 and was originally built as a tavern.

The owners at the time hosted the first official Guilderland town meeting in 1803.

In 1981, Laurie and Gerhard Beckmann bought the Appel property, opening doors to visitors.

The property’s first wedding was held in 1983. A little over a decade later, the gathering space was built to expand offerings for celebrations.

The inn’s gathering space was the site of Lady Antebellum singer Hillary Scott’s wedding back in 2012.

Thanks to the Guilderland Chamber of Commerce for this submission.
