FORTY FORT — A piece of history in Luzerne County can now be seen on display at a local restaurant.
Just hours after the Hotel Sterling’s demolition began, one of the original chandeliers from the hotel has been put up at Canteen 900 in Forty Fort.
The owners tell us, they have it hanging up with a pulley system under a skylight.
Owners hope having dinner under one of the original chandeliers will keep the hotel’s history alive.
“We’re proud, it’s priceless, everyone has a memory of the hotel sterling,” said owner, Abby Billek-Singh.
The decades old chandelier weighs more than 800 pounds, and required three month’s work of restoration in Luzerne County.
