Whitcomb to honor building's history with upcoming renovations

Whitcomb resident Rick Rasmussen can remember visiting the building for Easter when it was still a hotel.

At that time, the building tapped the mineral water springs for its spas, and Rasmussen said if he was within two blocks of The Whitcomb, he could smell the sulfur from the mineral baths.


The front entrance to The Whitcomb in downtown St. Joseph is pictured earlier this week.
