The Hotel

Hotel closes-- Thus. 10-14-99  was the last day  for the Hotel to do business. On Friday 10-22-99 the Hotel was demolished as a crowd looked on in tears. God rest the hotel.

"The vegetable stand", These words  describe the hotel. Unfortunately due to progress the hotel has been torn down and replaced by a Post Office (this is progress?) This page has been started by the friends of the Hotel. also known as the Vegetable Stand Crew. Kate Horn Fish originated the term "Vegetable Stand". Van Etten is situated in a valley surrounded by wooded hills, Van Etten is one of the best places in the world to party, etc., but now that the Hotel is gone there are a bunch of lost souls in the area.
