THE UPPER DELAWARE INN
The Upper Delaware Inn has been part of the Hancock scene for decades. Formerly the Capra Inn, the motel was purchased in 2016 by John Rajoppi and Mike Argiros. Previous owners included John’s father, Don Rajoppi, and the recent purchase brings the business back into the family. In addition to the new name, the motel is being updated and refurbished, inside and out.
The Upper Delaware Inn is located on the former site of Collette Manufacturing, a football manufacturer that operated in Hancock during the early 20th century. Just next door is the Larimer & Norton building, the former Louisville Slugger baseball bat factory. It is said that Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, Joe DiMaggio, and Ted Williams all set records with bats that started out in the Hancock mill.
