New B&Bs coming

Georgetown is soon going to have two new bed and breakfasts right across from each other on Church Street. The building that housed the former Church Street Salon and Spa was sold and is now operating as a bed and breakfast called the Sweet Lemon. The house was recently repainted from blue to mint green.

In the meantime, HARC has approved plans for a bed and breakfast to be built on the vacant lot at  201 E. 9th St. Early renderings for the proposed building are shown below.

Recycled House

Norma Harris, the widow of Southwestern University English professor Jack Harris, told me a neat story this week about the house she and her husband built at 1402 Hutto Rd. She said some of the wood their house was built from came from one of the small houses that was torn down to make room for the new President's House at Southwestern (The Turner-Fleming House).
