This substantial three-storey building was built as a hotel in the early years of the 20th century to accommodate visitors arriving on the Grassington Railway line which terminated nearby. It is named after a local landowner, Mr Marshall whose middle name was Wilson. He developed the hotel with several partners. In around 1990 it was converted into a care home for the elderly. The building and grounds were extensively redeveloped in 1997.
