Going, going, gone 1892-2011

Deconstruction of the Nogal-Ping Hotel [built in 1892] at the corner of Capitol St. and Hwy 6 in Eagle is done.  Claude DeGraw took it down, piece by piece.  Some of the pieces will be used elsewhere and some pieces are headed to landfill.

The Nogal Hotel circa 1895. It could accomodate up to 26 boarders.

During this process, Eagle County Historical Society member, Sandy Van Campen, took some great photographs of the building and some of the items found inside.  Thanks to Sandy for this documentation which is shared below.

Sandy & Jaci, These are great photos of the final end. I'm so glad that you took the time.

Great post, and I am so glad this was documented!
