The Old Hotel

I have really noticed the neat arcitecture of old buildings lately and while a small towns all over are dying my small home town has done a lot to maintain an old hotel downtown........

This old building has been around since 1885 and has long been a staple of the town. It is no longer a functioning hotel but even today it is an important landmark in my small hometown. We meet on its porch to watch the homecoming parade every October, have chili cook offs, and it has housed the local chamber of commerce for many years. Now they are closing its doors to the public, moving the chamber of commerce, and re-vamping it for senior citizen housing.
