Friday Finds ~ A beautiful Old Hotel

I just returned from a trip back to where I was born and this is the famous Hotel Roanoke built in 1862.  It is such a gorgeous hotel inside and out and has seen many of our presidents from Eisenhower up to the older Bush and also Douglas MacArther have stayed here.  Had breakfast brunch there on my first day in Roanoke VA along with my oldest brother, sister in law and their daughter my niece and my sister.  My bother and sister in law spent their wedding night in this hotel and the price was $7 a night.  The hotel has a policy if you have saved your receipt of your wedding night and on your 50th wedding anniversary you can spend the night at that rate which they did.
