Friendsville, PA (WBNG Binghamton) One local business has added some changes to its facilities, hoping to bring in more business than ever before.

The Choconut Inn had its grand opening this evening to showcase all the new.

The place was so packed, it was hard to find a parking spot.

Among the updated features is a pole barn, filled with a stage and plenty of space for people to spread out and enjoy live music.

You'll also notice an outdoor patio built around a fire.

The owners say it was great to build the new addition for an older building with a lot of history behind it.

"It was originally a post office and a stage coach stop, and people as famous as Teddy Roosevelt had been here," says owner Bob Pornbeck.

The Choconut Inn was built back in 1850.

With the new room, the Pornbecks say they will bring back their popular clam bakes, and will host parties for special occasions.
