In what used to be a garage, is a handicapped accessible, barrier-free room adjacent to the handicapped parking area.
Architect Iric Rex, center, leads tours of the building. The construction phase of the project took five months. The goal was to modernize while maintaining as much of the building's historic character as possible.
There are 10 guest rooms, nine of which have two beds each. There are four private bathrooms.
This is one of two rooms that are fully decorated. The others will be decorated as funds become available.
Rex explained the new electric heating and cooling units add air conditioning and replace the steam radiators.The units are individually controlled allowing guests to adjust the temperature.
The blue doors lead to the handicapped accessible room.
