  1. So until 1916, Packer Hotel was not "T" shaped, but basically long and narrow and parallel with High St. Very Interesting.

  2. When was this historic building demolished? Were any historic artifacts retained for posterity?

  3. Jim, There was a very big fire at the Packer House on March 17, 1969. It was later torn down. Was a junior at PAHS at the time. Will have to find an article about the fire in 1969.
