When the brand new White Sulphur Springs High School first opened its doors back in 1912, supporters saw it as a project that “elevates the tone of a community,” according to news reports at the time.

Today, more than a century later, that’s exactly what developers hope it will do again, when the doors to the old school open for business as The Schoolhouse Hotel.


Genny Freiman works with the design team for the new Schoolhouse Hotel. It will serve as a wedding venue and conference center as well as a boutique hotel.
