Hello Dear Reader,
As they went back through Provo Caroline dropped Wes and Mary at Hotel Roberts in Provo. That’s where they spent their honeymoon—for one whole night.
Each time we went by the old hotel, which was at 192 South University Avenue, Grandma (Mary) would say, "That's where we spent our honeymoon.
Sadly, the hotel was torn down in 2004. An article in the Deseret News said, "The hotel. . . built in 1883 was once host to myriad of social events. 'It was the social center of Provo for so many years. . .Every women's luncheon, every club meeting, all the BYU social activities — before they moved to the upper campus — were always held there.'"

I remember that old hotel really well. It was sad when it was torn down because I knew it held some special memories for grandpa and grandma!

I didn't realize they had torn it down. I remember driving by that old hotel many times on the way to see Grandma when David and I were first married and lived in Provo.
