Local man working to create downtown shelter

By Caleb Brabham
 
 
Over ten years ago, Ray Kinslow, board member of Bristow Nazarene Church, was traveling down Main Street when something about the brick work and old-world masonry of the 1923 American Hotel building, at 113 South Main, caught his eye. “It was strange,” said Kinslow. “I was  driving down the street one day and there was just something about it that  made me jerk back and look. Then, every time would go by, I would be compelled to look in that direction. It was a uilding that just drew me to it. I would do that from time to time. I would sit in front of the building and simply look at it wondering, ‘ what is this to be?’ I started thinking, ‘God, what do you want me to do with this building?’ He didn’t say anything for a while. But I
would continue to go down and look at it.

Thinking it might be past time to clean out the old closet, Dennis uncovered glass paneling that used to be on the building’s front.
