The McIntosh Memorial Library, Vernon County Historical Society, and Ridgeland Restorations LLC are partnering together for a “Conversations” program titled, “The Fortney Hotel: Past, Present and Future.”
Join us on Friday, November 20th at 10:30 am for this presentation live on Vernon Communications Co-op Community television channel 14 or the Library’s YouTube Channel, McIntosh Memorial Library Viroqua.
During the program you will hear about the Fortney’s historical past on Viroqua’s Main Street from the commentary provided by the Vernon County Historical Society researchers. Watch videos of the new owners: Larry, Sue, Brian and Amy Wrobel, and Ridgeland Restorations LLC, as they presently demo the old, reclaim the treasures, and remodel the interior and exterior of the hotel. Plus hear more details from their family about their vision for the bright future of this historic main street building!
Information can be found about the remodel on the Fortney Hotel’s Instagram and Facebook page, both at: thehistoricfortney.
