Fire destroyed parts of the Hotel Jeffery and damaged others last week. The hotel, built in 1851, counted Teddy Roosevelt and Queen Elizabeth as its visitors, and has been the heart and soul of the tiny foothills town for the past 163 years. The bar remained relatively unscathed, and owner Sara Zahn hopes to reopen that portion of the hotel soon and rebuild the rest.
