Fakten

  • This hotel was constructed in just 277 days.
  • The hotel was a popular destination for the American elite during its initial operation from 1902 to 1932.
  • The main building is circular, with hotel rooms situated around a massive domed atrium, the largest in the world until completion of Houston's NRG Astrodome in 1963.
  • A casualty of the Great Depression, the hotel closed in 1932. It was sold to the Jesuits in 1934, who operated the West Baden College Seminary here until 1964.
  • Many of the original opulent appointments were removed by the Jesuits, including the four distinctive Moorish towers, but the building was well-maintained until becoming vacant in 1985.
  • Another educational institution, Northwood College, operated in the building from 1966 until 1983.
  • It was named a National Historic Landmark in 1987.
  • Part of the exterior wall collapsed in 1991, but the dome remained structurally sound. This event spurred action on the part of preservation agencies to restore the unique building.
  • Designed to attract a buyer, a partial renovation was undertaken from 1996-1998, saving it from destruction.
  • This property was reopened in May 2007, which paired with the nearby French Lick Resort & Casino, completed a complex with 700 rooms, multiple mineral spas, restaurants, shops, 2 golf courses, and a casino.
