The Hotels

The hotels:




Just across the old stage coach route stood two large hotels.



The remaining footings of the upper Mtn. House hotel still stand today.











This was a large two story hotel. This was the second hotel built at Blount Springs. Mtn. House was built in 1883 because the original hotel was not large enough to handle all of the guests coming to Blount Springs.








The Mtn. House hotel can be seen in the drawing. It's the hotel sitting back behind the main hotel.








The original Jackson Hotel is located just down the hill. It was constructed in 1871. It was rebuilt in 1878 and was considered to be one of the finest hotels in the south.









Let’s go down the hill and look around.
