Inside Paradise Inn, 1940s

Paradise Inn in the 1940s looked similar to what it looks like today. One difference is that the large, wood floor is covered with carpet. Madora Dawkins says that Bem Dawkins (Jess Dawkins‘ father) put in that floor.

She says next time you’re up there, peak under the carpet. It’s still as beautiful as it was then.
