Comments on the above photos include:

I always remember the gift shop there. They had the Mad Libs and Magic pen games. Hotel next door some great parties.

One of my Grandparent’s favorite places to eat. Drove by it the other day. They’re gone, but I have fond memories of eating there with them.

The building was demolished in 2022. The Goddard School of Spring House opened its place.
