September 6, 1962 — One of the oldest relics reminiscent of other days was presented last week to Mayor H.B. Dyche from the estate of the late Vernon L. Good.
It is a porter’s badge worn by an attendant at the old Luray Inn. The badge is approximately two inches in diameter with a circular set of the wording Luray Inn with the number five between the words.
The ex-mayor was presented the badge by Bill Good of the Rileyville section.
The Luray Inn burned in 1891 and has been the focal point of many historical references.
