West Baden Springs Hotel Photo Gallery...and more
 

   I am please to announce some of my pictures have been included in a new book “The Dome in the Valley” , the history and rebirth of the West Baden Springs Hotel by James M. Vaughn. James is a historian, researcher, historic preservation advocate, and retired Army officer, born in Evansville, Indiana, and grew up in southern Indiana (Evansville and Princeton). He earned a BS (Finance), Butler University; MA (Business), Webster University; and an MA (Political Science), Ball State University. The book is a limited-edition, 643-page, hardbound book in large format  (8 3/4” X 11 1/2”), along with its 900+ images, chronicles the compelling 158-year story of the hotel—its builders, owners, restorers, and prominent visitors. http://www.domeinthevalley.com/
