I took a quick tour of Sweet Springs, WV on Argust 14th as the C-3 was finally out of film. That’s why I usually bring the digicam along with me. The former resort is just up the road from Paint Bank, VA, and used to entertain a who’s-who of folks. It fell into bad times when, due to lack of railroad service, and the Great Depression, people quit going to it. It became a state owned property, housing at various times a sanatorium, an old folks home, and a drug rehabilitation center. It closed for good in the 1990’s, and was sold off. A second sale resulted in the promise of restoring it to it’s former glory, but it hasn’t come to pass.
