Historic Inn Renting Rooms For $25

There's a new place to sleep in the Silver Valley, where you can lay down your head for as little as $25 a night. Closed for years, Kellogg's historic McKinley Inn is back open, resurrected as a hostel."This is the first building that really caught my eye when I came to Kellogg," said inn proprietor Pat Ryan. A regular visitor to the area, Ryan looked past the leaky roof, damaged drywall, and faded paint and saw a vision. He got to work last fall, building hostel-style bunk beds in shared rooms, sprucing up private rooms and turning the historic landmark into a thrifty place to spend the night"/Tania Dall, KXLY.

Question: Which old building in your North Idaho community would you like to see saved and possibly transformed into an eatery or hotel?
