Part VII - In search of the Tatham Spring
hen I was home in June, I was finally able to drive out to the grounds of the old Tatham Springs Hotel in Washington County, Kentucky. I had visited the grounds twice in the summer of 2005, taking an immense and extensive photo record of the property. In May of 2006, I was alerted by a friend of mine that the building had completely burned to the ground. As a point of reference, please consider the following three photographs. The first is a historical photo of the building that I found online.
The next photo is from roughly the same angle, taken by me last summer.
And finally, the way it looks today after the fire, from the same angle.
