Richmond Hill Inn/Gabrielle's - Asheville

Hopefully no one has reservations coming up soon at either the Richmond Hill or Gabrielle's. It burned down overnight.

      It was a beautiful building, JB. Unfortunately, the owner of the last several years let it go downhill. You should have seen it when Dr. Michel owned it. It was a fabulous property then.

      It'll be interesting to see what the investigation reveals. The property was in foreclosure and was scheduled to sold on the courthouse steps next month. There is lots of speculation today about what happened last night. So sad to see this ending for such a grand place.
