The St. Cloud Hotel burned last night. It is another historic building here in Washington, NJ, to go up in flames. I wrote another note about the local hardware store that burned to the ground last year. There are many people talking about how they think this is part of the “rejuvenation” plan for the borough. It does seem highly suspicious that a second historic building has been destroyed by fire in just over a year. Our local fire department hasn’t been this busy in decades.
Photos will follow within the next few days.
