Description : The familiar old Beeton landmark, the Queen's Hotel, finally succumbed to the wrecker's hammer last Saturday. Builder Bert Fava and his crew had the venerable old structure down in less than a day as a crowd of interested Beeton residents looked on. The hotel was built in the early 1800s and served several functions over the years. A plan to turn the old building into an apartment complex never got past first base. No definite plan has been approved for the site yet, but Fava may build a new town hall with municipal offices, fire hall, and library. The beginning of the end for the Queen's Hotel came in 1974 when the Simcoe County Board of Health condemned it.
