History of the Bush House
The three story building had been closed since 2002 and plagued by age, weather, and vandalism. The sale of the property in late 2010 came as a welcome surprise to local residents who feared they had lost another local iconic structure. The new owners, Blair and Kathy Corson are Index residents, have just completed renovations on another community icon; the Index Tavern – now known as The River House; an Outdoor Adventure Center for rafting and family recreation.
Guest rooms were completed in July 2021, and work continues on the event spaces and restaurant.
