William Lucas is the grandfather of Marian E. Lucas, who married Peter Heisey Lehman https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Lehman-781.  I can only find one son of William, Harry S. Lucas https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/70556573/harry-s-lucas and am trying to determine whether Harry is Marian's father.

What an amazing picture. I love the colors - classic victorian. Looks like it may be a postcard.  

The people sitting on the old porch, with the y-slants below the roof, make it easy to date this picture to the early 1800s.

Love the porch railing, and the horse hitches in front.

Such a nice time period picture.

Thank you for posting.

If you use the link, "Click here for image details" below the photo, you will see that it is indeed a postcard ... and also I have added some history of the place in the comments section.
Thank you Susan for your best answer pick.
Thank you Janne, it is a fabulous picture.  My town also had a Central Hotel, and I think that is why I loved your picture so much.
