Inn and Fargo, December 2002
1. Contrary to public promises made by the Auropra Foundation, LLC, the historic Inn's original doors and distinctive sidelight windows are destroyed. We're told that they willbe "replicated." One wonders if the foundation's notion of replication is like it's idea of "restoration." (See the next page, with photos of the inn's amazing new features.)
2. The Fargo remains open for busines, with a truck from a hazardous waste clean-up company parked in front.
