Patients would come and stay in hotel rooms on the upper floor of the building while receiving treatments on the first floor and basement. In 1980, the clinic closed and the Rineharts moved their family practice up the road. The Old Wheeler Hotel building changed ownership a couple of times in the 80s and 90s. Some improvements were made including new store-fronts, which once housed Creative Fabrics (original owner of the Quilt Block) and now The Roost café. In 2009, the building and business was purchased by Katie Brown, who is continuing the tradition of constant improvements, as a project like this is never truly “finished.”
