Mentone Springs Inn: Mentone Springs Inn
OMG...Tony and I drove up the mountain and pulled to the top of the knoll to see the Mentone Historic INN..and all I saw was smoke rising from the ashes where it once stood. There was a news guy taking photos and I asked what happened and he said that they just finished putting out the flames.
IT BURNED TO THE GROUND!!!

So so sad !!!!
A sign sits among the remains and debris from the 130 year old Mentone Springs Hotel and White Elephant Antique Galleries on Monday, March 3, 2014 in Mentone, Ala. A fire ripped through the Mentone Springs Hotel Saturday night and authorities are unsure of the cause of the fire. The Mentone Springs Hotel was one of the oldest hotels in the state of Alabama and was featured in The New York Times best-seller "1,000 Places to See Before You Die." Built with 57 rooms in 1884 by Dr. Frank Caldwell of Pennsylvania, the hotel was named after Mentone in France after Caldwell's daughter saw news reports of Queen Victoria visiting there
