(INDEX, WA) -- The once grand eatery and hotel in Index that was the Bush House Hotel & Restaurant had been sitting idle and alone at 308 5th Street for a very long time.
Years actually, where the brutal cold and damp of Cascade Mountain winter weather slowly seeped into every pore of the hotel’s ancient timbers. Things began to sag and shift and moan. The place became unsafe to walk around in.
But things are changing. The Bush House is starting to come alive for a second act. See the Chronicle’s Oct. 27 Feature Story here about the efforts that are bringing the grand old dame alive once again.
