The North Bridge Inn was built in 1885 by Jonathan Maynard
Keyes, owner of the town's highly successful sporting goods
emporium which was located on Walden Street. A hearty, jovial
man who had a picuresque resemblance to President Theodore
Roosevelt and once met Mr. Roosevelt while Roosevelt was campaigning
in Concord. He lived here until his death in 1933.
Considered a "modern home" in the late 1800's, the
house remained unchanged (even surviving the hurricane of
1938 with little damage) until the 1960's. At that time the
building was converted into commercial space. The victorian
screened porch on the front of the building was torn down,
a retail space was added to the first floor and bedrooms suites
to the second and third. A woman's clothing store then occupied
retail space which is now a real estate office. The rest of
the building was taken over by the Colonial Inn and used as
1993, Concord resident Cheryl Roderrick took over the Colonial
Inn's lease on the space and turned it into a small Concord
bed and breakfast, the North Bridge Inn.
1998 the current owner, Heidi Godbout, bought the Concord
B & B from Cheryl. A lifelong resident of the area, Heidi
graduated from the Carlisle and Concord Public Schools, Colby
College and recieved an MBA from Northeastern University.
Heidi lives in Concord with her husband, Steve and dog, Posey.
