Letters to the Editor - April 13, 2014

(Continued)

At this point the story was getting interesting. Then Mr. Patton brought out the drawings, and that sealed the deal. The plan to have a modern Baker Hotel that appears as it did in 1930 really struck me. This is a niche that will attract both tourists who want a unique experience to combine with the varied activities available in the area, as well as groups hosting meetings/conventions that want an easily accessible, safe community with that “small town feel.”

The potential for the downtown area with the Baker Hotel alive again is limited only by one’s imagination. Needless to say, I went into the luncheon with years of skepticism regarding the Baker and came out a “true believer” in the project.
