Christmases at the Park View Inn

 Christmas cards sent out each year from The Harmison’s, owners of the Park View Inn (now The Country Inn) are part of a local resident’s collection, which they shared with The Morgan Messenger. The Inn was famed for its holiday decorations and parties, and for its delicious food. Each card is a look into the past of Berkeley Springs inn-keeping.
