((THE HOTEL BURNED DOWN IN 1901. THERE WAS A GREAT BIG FIRE THAT DESTROYED ALL OF THE MAIN BRICK BUILDING THAT YOU SEE. BUT DUE TO THIS AREA HERE, THEY WERE ABLE TO SAVE THE SPA BUILDING AND THE CASINO BUILDING, AND THE SHOPS DOWN IN COTTAGE ROW. ))

((MARY SANDERS/HOMESTEAD MARKETING DIR.: THAT'S SOMETHING THAT OUR GUESTS SAY, IS WHEN THEY COME HERE, THEY JUST EXPERIENCE SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY. THEY'RE ALLOWED TO FEEL THEY CAN DO ANYTHING THAT THEY WANT AND THEY REALLY ARE RETURNING TO A PLACE THAT THEY OWN, OR HAVE SOME SENSE OF HISTORY WITH. SO, I THINK OUR HOSPITALITY AND OUR WELCOMENESS AND OF COURSE, THE HISTORY HERE-- I THINK ARE SOME OF OUR NICEST AMENITIES. ))
