The Palace Hotel in Salida

The Palace Hotel goes back to the 19th century and if I recall correctly, it is no longer used as a hotel: The ground level is a retail store and the upper levels have been converted into condos.

A lot of those condo conversions going on these days. Nice shot.

Better that than having it pulled down. Liquor JUGS?

An iconic Main Street USA building. Bit of an ostentatious name, though... :-)

If it's that old, there may be some ghosts roaming around.... oohhhhh! heheheee
It'd be kinda cool to live in a converted hotel... groovy! =)
