On Sunday November 10, 2013 during their monthly open house, the Flat Rock Historical Society decorated the Smith Hotel in a historical fashion.
Walter Smith’s picture in uniform and parts of his WWII uniform was also on display.
The parlor, what we now call the front room, had a 1940 set up of a uniform, trunk and other era army necessities.
One of the bedrooms on the second level also has a uniform displayed.
The hotel was built in the late 1800’s and all of the furnishings are from that era. Did you know that one of the bedrooms was converted into a doctor’s office in the early 1900’s?
There is a lot more history of downtown Flat Rock in the Smith Hotel.
The Flat Rock Historical Society has an open house every second Sunday from 1-4PM, free of charge, but donations are welcome. You can visit the Historical Societies web page for more information on the monthly open houses or you can also call them for small gatherings at “Memory Lane”.
