ladysmith4b-72.jpgI previously wrote a post on Carnegie library buildings that have been converted to bed and breakfasts. The Library Hall Bed and Breakfast in Ladysmith, Wisconsin is one of only two such arrangements that I am aware of in the United States. The other is in Sterling, Colorado. Recently, I had the opportunity to visit Ladysmith and see the Library Hall Bed and Breakfast and have included some photos above.

I'm glad you found my blog entry about the Carnegie B & B. My wife and I hope to stay there one of these days on our way to see my son and his family in Longmont.

Jennifer is my sister and I really enjoyed your presentation! I did not realize there was another Carnegie Library B&B.
