I understand that the hotel is in bankruptcy and a sheriff's sale is slated for this January 3rd in Brookville.

I've stayed at the Pantall several times and though it needed renovations, it didn't appear to be in that bad a condition.

Now if nothing is done, people visiting Punxsutawney for Groundhod Day will have to stay in DuBois or Indiana.

Someone will buy it, that's a prime corner. But will it stay as a hotel and how much is the upgrade?

Is the foreclosure for taxes or mortgage? That may make a difference.

One of the best hardwares I've ever been in was in Punsxy and was closed and torn down several (like 15) years ago. It's now a drugstore. I asked the very elderly owner why he was closing and his response was that he couldn't find a buyer for the business.

The same thing may happen with the hotel.

The same thing happened to Manley's Gun Shop in Brookville. Dave wasn't able to find someone he was comfortable selling the business to. I thought about it but really had no desire to become a small businessman.

That's a historic building. It should be preserved at all costs.
