Our Story
Alexander Virden and Sandra Doss have be working to bring this landmark building from blight to life since the end of 2005. In 2008 they had exhausted their own resources, and could not find any funding for the project, to keep the project alive they opened The 302 on the Square Restaurant, in the restored ground floor of the hotel, to raise the money to finish the hotel and open the arts school.
 They have sold off everything, including their home and they now live behind the hotel in an old RV. They cook and run the restaurant and work to complete this project that is of historical and economic importance to Berryville, and Carroll County, for the jobs, tourism, and opportunity it will bring. But now Alexander could lose the ability to walk at any time, if he doesn't have a double complete hip replacement. If they can't find the funds to move the project forward and allow Alexander to have his surgery they will be forced to sell the building and give up on this project that could bring so much to this small town.
