Aerial: Bon Air Hotel
Fitz-Symms Distinctive Photography Studio
The Bon Air Hotel, located on the hillside of the Summerville Historic District on Walton Way, was one of four hotels established and owned by the Vanderbilt family in the early twentieth century. The hotel closed in 1960 due to the lack of funds to secure the mortgage and was changed to the Bon Air Retirement Hotel for the elderly and people who required assisted living. Currently, the building is now residential apartments for low income housing and senior citizens. The Bon Air is listed as a contributing structure in the Summerville Historic District and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
