The history of the Mountainside Hotel, an interview with lifetime Point Pleasant resident, Lance (Lanny) Schneider, took place April 24 in Point Pleasant.
Lanny’s father owned and operated the hotel during the first five decades of the 1900s. The event was part of series, “Point Pleasant Time Travel.”
Point Pleasant Community Baptist Church trustee Peter Hutwelker conducted the interview in front of an enthusiastic audience. A video recording will be made available for viewing on the Point Pleasant Community Baptist Church’s website, ppbaptist.org.
