Tatham Springs Hotel: The Final Chapter


What follows is an epilogue to a series I originally posted here in the summer of 2005. If for some reason you missed the original series and would like to view it, here are the links.

Part I - The Exterior of the Hotel
Part II - The Pool  & Bath Houses
Part III - The First Floor Interior, A
Part IV - The First Floor Interior, B
Part V - The 2nd Floor Foyer, Hall, and Exterior
Part VI - The 2nd Floor Interior
Part VII - In search of the Tatham Spring


hen I was home in June, I was finally able to drive out to the grounds of the old Tatham Springs Hotel in Washington County, Kentucky. I had visited the grounds twice in the summer of 2005, taking an immense and extensive photo record of the property. In May of 2006, I was alerted by a friend of mine that the building had completely burned to the ground. As a point of reference, please consider the following three photographs. The first is a historical photo of the building that I found online.



The next photo is from roughly the same angle, taken by me last summer.



And finally, the way it looks today after the fire, from the same angle.

Thank you for sharing yet another set of beautiful pictures, though they're sad this time. I had been hoping against hope that someone would take the time to restore that building. It was beautiful.

Marbles?

The only thing I can think of from the entire series that you might be referring to is the shot of a girl's ponytaill elastic-tie with the plastic balls on it that I saw on the floor by one of the fire places.

No, I didn't keep it.
