Halloween

Sunday, November 1, 2009

For Halloween my mom and I went to the Viduta Festival. When the community of Monte Sano Mountain was founded, it was called Viduta. The festival included a history of the community, tour of the area, silent auction, and hay ride.

Part of the tour was the chimney of the Hotel Monte Sano. Hotel Monte Sano opened in 1887 and was a popular resort for wealthy families. It closed in 1900 due to a reclining economy. All that's left is the chimney.

Along the tour route is the Bark House, which is currently under construction. The exterior of the house is bark. The interior is very impressive and includes a reclaimed mantel as a kitchen island and a tree trunk which is being used as a pedestal sink.

Monte Sano Mountain is very pretty this time of year, and I took a few photos.
