We found out today, just as a lot of other local folks that there is a strong chance the Bentley will be purchased by perhaps a group of local citizen’s.The owner of the Diamond Grill appears to be the principal. Mike Jenkins. I hope that this happens. He realizes the importance of this building.. I believe he will strive to bring the Bentley back to life.To all of those involved. Thank you for seeing into the future. It is the right thing to do. I sincerely hope it happens.

August 10th, 1908 was the day the newly built grand hotel opened its doors..Sadly the only coverage of the birthday was by one media outlet..klax-tv. Boo to the rest..a tip of the top hat to klax!
