WALNUT COVE, N.C. -- The historic Dodson Hotel in Walnut Cove was demolished on Sunday after inspectors condemned the building after years of disrepair.

The hotel has been known since the 1920s, once considered one of the finest places to stay in the area.

But the Stokes County landmark came down and town officials sold what was inside.

The items spanned decades, from the hotel’s original banister to an old Bee Gees lunch box.
