Rising from the ashes

Wreck of Chapter House

Taken in October 2015, this photo shows a mini-cornfield growing next to the Chapter House, which was destroyed by fire in April 2015. Remember the popcorn they used to have out on the bar? A bunch of corn kernels must have scattered during the fire. It was sad to see The Chapter House in its burnt state, but this literal “rise from the ashes” scene brought a smile to my face.
