I grew up just off of the left side of this picture, and played and worked at the Shannon Green Golf Course which surround the Sheraton. The Sheraton's main lobby and restaurant was made from the barn of the old farm. Wine was kept in one of the silos. Unfortunately, all but the hotel was bulldozed and is a huge shopping area ironically called Central Park, filled with big box stores, chain restaurants and everything considered typical tacky America these days.
