Hotel Quinte 1907 - 2012

I just called my friend Lois. At times of loss, we reach out to people who know and understand. A few minutes ago I got an email from our man at city hall, telling me that the Hotel Quinte had burned overnight. Brick walls standing. Massive smoke and water damage. Walls in danger of crumbling. An inestimable loss of local heritage.

  1. It is indeed a time of loss, Lindi. This will leave much more than a physical hole in Belleville's downtown. I'm so sorry to hear Hotel Quinte is gone.
