This hotel stood on the shore of Crescent Lake from the late 1800's until probably the early 1920's when it was destroyed by fire.
The hotel stood on the site of the current home of Dick and Jane Desbien (Silver Beach) and was known as St. Marks according to the book "These Acworth Hills" . Another name for the hotel was The Cold Pond House. The hotel was owned and operated by Willard and Catherine Putnam, the Great Grandparents of our own Tom Buinicky. Willard Putnam can be seen on the porch in this photo standing beside the corner post. This photo was taken from Crescent Lake Road. A bit of the lake can be seen in the lower left of the photo.
