Yes, we did indeed own this hotel. My father told me stories of visiting there as a boy and playing cops and robbers with an old cap and ball Colt Walker revolver that was knocking around the front desk as a curio. I don't have any proof, but I am sure something can be found with a name on it.
W.P. is my ggf. J.B. is my grandfather and my rather is James Conard.
