Boonsboro Fire: another historic building lost

Around 7:45 Friday morning calls were placed to local fire departments regarding the historic Boone Hotel in the heart of historic Boonsboro (1 North Main Street).

The century-old structure, owned by local novelist Nora Roberts, was undergoing extensive renovation for use as an inn.

Connecting buildings, also historic, were badly damaged.

This is a reminder of the fragile nature of the fabric of history.
Fortunately, there were no injuries.  Still the town is bereft by this loss.

p.s. I'd add more pix but those numnutz at blogger have left me clueless as to how to do it in this new format.
