hotelCome and see what we’ve been scanning from the Longwell Family postcards
( and a couple from Phillip Jensen) for the WRLS ECHO Project.
All this week you can check out the original postcards and add your knowledge to ours.
On Monday and Thursday from 2:00-6:30, we’ll also have a slideshow of the images.
This picture of the hotel on Beaver Creek is only one of the many!
It’s hard to believe there was room for a rail line down there.
