Pride in hotel

On May 2, the former Camelot Street Courthouse was open as a hotel.

“The summer has been very good,” Chris Kowbuz, general manager of the Courthouse Hotel, told The Chronicle-Journal on Wednesday.

“We have noticed over the last three to four weeks that we have really picked up a lot of tourists, American’s coming up from Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois area and we’ve had great feedback from that,” he said.
