Very nice photo of this old house. These old places interest me. Thanks for posting it. Where is it located?

If I'm not mistaken, that building burned down years ago. I would have loved to have visited there sometime. I know that it was located in the small town of Edgemont, NC and that area was flooded out back in the 1940's. It's mainly just a tourist destination now. People love the gorge and Wilson's Creek. Good fishing there, too.

This is a great picture! I haven't seen a picture of the old hotel in years! Yes it did burn down quite a few years ago... Does anyone have any really old pictures of the hotel back in its glory days?? Ive seen some in the past...

Yeah, I love these old pics too.

If i had the money and could find the land, I think I might try to put an "old style" hotel back up that way....seems to me like it would be a good attraction...with modern amenities...but old time feel.

Sure could be a great place. I remember back in the early 1950's visiting this place on several weekends. They cooked homecooked meals and people sat around and took it easy while waiting to eat. Paratroopers used to come into that area to do their practice maneuvers. I believe there is a website that has some photos of the area, but I can't think of the man's name that owns the site.
