Phyllis and Dwight Cooke have recently opened the doors of Ridgway's newest bed and breakfast, the Cooke's Murphyhouse, located in a historic home along East Avenue.
The home, located at 111 East Ave., was built in 1894 as a gift to the bride of Sam Murphy, the son of Walter Murphy of the original Hyde-Murphy Company.
