Our Proud History and Heritage
The Winthrop Arms was officially opened in 1916 by Fred L. Hall, proprietor. As one of the North Shore's largest hotels, it offered its patrons a billiard room, spacious ballroom, and a roof promenade.
The lobby was finished in beautiful mahogany and tiled floor which has carefully been maintained to preserve its beauty.
The ballroom, at the time, was under the personal supervision of a Mistress of Ceremonies with music by the Strachans Orchestra. Modern and glide dancing were popular features at the Winthrop Arms.
Each guest room afforded every possible comfort including electric lights, house telephone and steam heat.
A putting green of 15,000 square feet was renowned for its beauty and quality all over the North Shore.
The Winthrop Arms was conveniently located from Boston via the Revere Beach and Lynn Railroad for a 10¢ fare.
We have strived to maintain the quality and service started by Mr. Hall, those many years ago, for your enjoyment.
In 1978 David Goll sealed the purchase of the Winthrop Arms with a "handshake" from Rena Wallace. Through the years both David and his wife Connie have strived and labored in the many renovations and improvements ongoing throughout this historic building. Connie and David's latest endeavor is the major restoration of the front facade of the building.
The entire "Arms" family welcomes you and strives to make your stay with us a pleasureable one.
