|Title:||Hand Mirror; Bonneauville Hotel|
In 1990, this hand mirror was purchased by Karl and Julie Orndorff at a yard sale on Maple Street in Bonneauville. Once one of two early hotels in the town, the old building has been standing for nearly two centuries. The structure was constructed of logs and now sports several layers of siding. Raymond Strausbaugh was the last proprietor of the hotel before it became the private home for he and his wife and sixteen children. The building was later the home of Mr. and Mrs. Patrick J. and Sylvia Strausbaugh Eckenrode. Mrs. Eckenrode is the daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Strausbaugh. Patrick J. Eckenrode remodeled some of the interior of the building in the late 1980's. At his yard sale he and family members liquidated many items including this mirror, sold as; "came from the old hotel."
