WOW! My (late) wife and I LOVED the place. When we heard of the fire, we drove out there the following day, stood behind the "yellow tape" and sobbed. I'm disappointed there is so little on line (that I can find) about the hotel.
She and I both being railroad enthusiasts, we even rode the "Santa Train" from Ware to South Barre (Barre Plains?) one year (I found the video I shot again a couple of months ago). We also loved the little restaurant at Tanner-Hiller.
We loved visiting Barre and even for a time, considered a mail subscription to the paper.
Thank you for putting a name to that postcard image!
I totaly live next door to the man who owns that barn. he's a friend of my dads and of mine. his name is paul. as odd as his property is he's a very nice man. he simply cares nothing for the system. then again if i spent 20 something years in prison for something i didnt do id be a little pissed to.
Fantastic photos, please consider joining my groups your photos would be great fit for North American Railroader, and Locomotion.. Invites have been sent to join I have a lot of members already in the railroading groups of which the photos are focused on our continent's railroading heritage and future...
Thanks, Papabarn. I am trying to pin down the location. I didn't have a GPS and I will get it out of Sudbury as soon as I can .
Sorry for the inconvenience.
Thank you! Greetings from Massachusetts (between Boston and Worcester)US. Hope you are well!
World is a small place
I hate to tell you this, but your photo location is not in Wayland but in Sudbury, Ma.
Ken was a visionary. Not only in technology but in how he related to and treated other people. As an employer, he "set the bar" for management to a level that few employers have or will ever reach. By doing so he gained an employee work ethic, dedication, and loyalty that few employers will ever see. I am proud to have been one of those employees.
