Black and white photograph of the mountain View Hotel, close up. A two-story white wooden building with three chimney stacks jutting out of the roof. The hotel has a double porch with white railings. There are 4 windows, with shutters on the upper level. Windows can also be seen on the lower level. There is a American flag waving off a post on the second floor porch and a second flag, presumably the North Carolina flag, flying between the first and second floor of the building. There is also a decorative banner hung under the name sign of the hotel. A power line and part of a tree can be seen on the left hand side of the photo. Picture is a bit blurry.
