The Manor House, Bert's, Outlaw, I believe was the last name hung there...
had the best steaks there as well as a bar...
As you can see, this building is boarded up... and it looks like it will join
another one like it ... that use to be down the road about half a mile.
Burnt by firemen, for practice... this is what happens to old building
that are decided to be of no use. This building has been here for well
over 50 years. But now will join some of the other Sandpoint, (Ponderayin this case) buildings that the natives loved... IGA... Panhandle Mill,
Oh, if these walls could talk... the laughter, the tears, the fights, and the
joy. Music of Johnny Lawson for so many years... so many danced in this
old building... My last time in this building was a year or so ago. It was showing
it's age so very badly... and in the past couple of years, we would not have
been surprised to hear of it burning... The time before, it was so loud, so
smoky, we decided we were too old to go back. But we did do our share of
dancing in the years...
So if I see the black smoke heading for the sky, I will know that the end
has come to the past, and this old building.. thanks for the memories..Bert's.
