    Another great picture Lynette!

    Ben Harris had a hotel in Briceland that got off its foundation during the ’06 quake.

    I wish there were some photos, but so many Briceland family photos were lost in the various fires that the town suffered. And I always hold hope for finding a lost photo archive.

    For the record, I specifically typed ” got moved off” its foundation having referenced a newspaper account… I don’t need any help from wordpress misgrammarizing puhlease, I can botch a sentence just fine on my own.
