Reynolds D. McAllister, the popular proprietor of the McAllister House of Eau Claire, was born in the Province of New Brunswick, Canada, August 7. 1845. He came to Eau Claire during the balmy days of the lumber industry, in 1873, and for 10 years was engaged in the lumber business, and in 1884 he built the McAllister Hotel, of which he has ever since been the genial proprietor. This hostelry is well known among the visitors to Eau Claire, and is usually overflowing with patronage. 

On October 14, 1883, Mr. McAllister married Ellen G. Powers, to which union five children have been born: John M., Arthur M., Daniel E., Walter L. and Mary E. 

Mr. McAllister holds membership in the Catholic Knights of Wisconsin and the St. Patrick's Church, of Eau Claire. He has never indulged in politics nor sought political preferment, preferring the quiet of his home and family to the rabble of the political game.
