Founded in 1946 by Alphonse DeLamielleure, the Victory Inn obtained its name in recognition of our country's WWII victory. Alphonse and Mary DeLamielleure raised 10 children while tending to the family business. Their youngest son Joe played professional football in the NFL; 8 years with the Buffalo Bills and 5 years with the Cleveland Browns. Joe was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2003. Today the Victory Inn is owned and operated by DeLamielleure grandchildren including Jim, Bev, Kathy and her husband Ken.
