Grand View Ship Hotel

To consol me over the demise of The Metropolitan, a friend sent a link to the marvelous Grand View Ship Hotel in south central Pennsylvania. It was located near her home. She first saw it from afar when her fiance was bringing her up the valley from Virginia to meet his parents. It burned down in 2001.


Years ago, Mrs. Contrarian and I would take the Lincoln Highway (now US 30) through central and western PA and we enjoyed the great roadside attractions of yesteryear but hated getting stuck behind an 18-wheeler just as we were ascending a hill.
