THE Heritage Inn at 300 Main Street in Halstead was recently sold to a group of area investors. It will continue offering apartments and nightly rooms. HALSTEAD— ALD Holdings, a group of area investors, has purchased Halstead’s Heritage Inn from long-time owner, Geraldine Hartong.  It had been on the market since September 2016.

The Heritage Inn at 300 Main Street will remain open. The building has been a part of Halstead’s history, first opening as the Murat Hotel in 1920.

The members of ALD own and manage properties in Halstead, Sedgwick, Moundridge, Newton, Haven and Wichita. 

Kelley DeGraffenreid, who worked for many years as a writer and photographer for the Harvey County Independent, is one of the new owners. 

“We have great friends and family in Halstead and are excited to be involved with this project,” she said. “Mrs. Hartong dedicated many years to this amazing property and we look forward to carrying on her hard work and dedication.” 

“Our first priority is to find great tenants for the studio and one-bedroom apartments we have available.  Because we pay all utilities, including cable, these rooms are an amazing bargain in a beautiful, historic building.” 

The group will also be updating and refreshing several rooms, including those available to rent on a nightly basis, which are currently available to rent on Airbnb. 

“We have some design ideas for these beautiful old rooms that we think will help make them a destination,” DeGraffenreid said.
