WHITE SULFUR SPRINGS, WV (WOAY) – U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito spent a day visiting the town of White Sulfur Springs, where she met various local shopkeepers and turned her attention to economic developments as well as other positive advances in our mountain state.
“The shops in White Sulfur, the renaissance on Main Street on Main Street is just phenomenal. There is a lot of private investment, there are many committed people who see the vision of tourism in this area, ”says Senator Shelley Moore Capito.
One of her last stops in the city was the historic White Sulfur Springs High School, a once derelict building that is now a grand vision of an innovative future hotel.
“We did a research and there has never been a hotel, large or boutique like this one, where 100 percent of the rooms and every aspect of the building were completely disabled-friendly and able to entertain people with disabilities. “Says Charlie Hammerman, President and CEO of the Disability Opportunity Fund.
The Schoolhouse Hotel will not only focus on the needs of the disabled, but will be a unique staple for the entire community, and the Senator plans to work with the organization to make this innovative vision a reality.
“We will do everything in our power to make sure this goes well, whether it be to find more investment funds or to ensure that the ADA accessibility issues envisaged here are appreciated and really get it done – new build,” says Capito.
The Opportunity Disability Fund is not only focused on the future of the old school, but also on restoring and keeping all businesses in downtown White Sulfur alive.
