Travelers on the Central Branch Railroad found a landmark stop in Waterville at the track-side Weaver Hotel. For decades, the Weaver was the travel, tourism and social hub of this region and of the Central Branch west of Atchison. Built in 1905, the hotel sits directly across the street from the railroad tracks. Passengers waited for their train in the front parlor of the hotel, found lodging upstairs, ate in the dining room, and stepped across the street for performances in the Opera House. In the early years, drummers (traveling salesmen) arrived on the train and stayed at the Weaver Hotel.
The facility hosts 10 lodging rooms, 2 party rooms, a visitors center with a gift shop, and is handicap accessible.
