Here is the story of the Greenbrier Hotel, West Virginia, regarded as one of America's finest resorts. This colorful and comprehensive chronicle traces the world-renowned resort from its frontier days, as the summer capital of the Old South, through the 1980s. It has been a gathering place for fashionable society, a meeting place for policymakers, and was converted to a hospital during the WWII. After the war, Dorothy Draper, an influential decorator, redecorated the interior to ready it for its grand reopening. The book is 184 pages and in excellent condition. Author is Richard Conte, historian of the hotel since 1978.
