Made of wood, after all

Did the Boardwalk ever burn?

The No Burn Shelburne

Originally built in 1869 and over the years went through a slew of owners and renovations before finally being demolished 117 years later in 1986. Kudos to The Shelburne for surviving the predominant fate of most wooden hotels of the era - burning down.

Wrong Name

Shall burn is probably a better name.

Is that smoke

I smell?
