Monte Ne Ruins

The ruins are now surrounded by tall fencing, and graffiti -- some of it quite vulgar -- covers the exterior walls. Given how hard it is to find, it is not worth the trip.

Monte Ne Hotel.

Monte Ne Hotel Ruins

Very old hotel right on Beaver Lake. There was a whole town that was decided to be hurried underwater by the Army Corps of Engineers. The hotel is the only part that remains above water most of the time. The top of the amphitheater and horse stables show when the water level is very low.

Monte Ne was financier William Hope Harvey's site for a planned 130 ft. tall pyramid monument that would contain all of civilization's accumulated knowledge, before it destroyed itself. He never completed the pyramid, and his hotel and other buildings were flooded by Beaver Lake.
