The historic Archer House River Inn in Northfield has been declared a total loss after a devastating fire last fall.
The hotel, which first opened in 1877, is located on the Cannon River in downtown Northfield.
It has been closed since November, when a fire broke out in the Smoqehouse eatery, which is located in the same building. It spread throughout the hotel, causing extensive damage.
The many renovations and remodels the building has undergone helped the fire spread, officials said.
The building suffered further damage when a portion of it collapsed earlier this month. A video taken by Laura Hakala and shared in a Northfield community Facebook group shows part of the building caving in.
The building’s insurers, Rebound Partners, have now declared the building a total loss.
A representative from Rebound Partners told the Star Tribune that, after working with the building’s owners, stakeholders are now looking at other options for the property, including restoration, replacement or redevelopment.
The building is also home to two restaurants, a coffee shop and retail space.
