Mrs. A.M. Gover Expanding Her Hotel, The Kentucky House, 1911

"Mrs. A.M. Gover Expanding Her Hotel," from the French Broad Hustler, Thursday, April 6, 1911

This season the Kentucky House will be known as a 75-room hotel. Mrs. A.M. Gover, the proprietoress, has succeeded in leasing the two handsome cottages owned by Postmaster B. Jackson for the coming season and will conduct one of the most fashionable hotels of this city.

Since starting the boarding house business in Hendersonville many years ago Mrs. Gover has received a steady increase and enlarged her boarding house capacity until now she has one of the handsomest houses in the town and will conduct her business under three roofs this season.

The two cottages of Mr. Jackson are now undergoing some very extensive improvement and by June will be in a condition for occupancy. The spacious dining room of the house formerly known as the Marion will be converted into a ballroom where the many young people and guests of the hotel will enjoy dancing every night. During the past winter months the Kentucky Home has been taxed to its utmost to accommodate the business of winter tourists and with the rush of the summer season the proprietress has decided to increase the capacity.

The total capacity of the hotel will be in the neighborhood of from 250 to 300 guests, including some out-side roomers.
