Hotel Virginia (Natrona County Annex), Casper Wyoming

This century old building in Casper Wyoming was most recently used as Natrona County's County Annex, a government administrative building, but it had its origins as a hotel.  It's currently under renovations which will convert it into apartments, which is somewhat similar to its original use as a hotel.

I don't  know what the original name of the hotel was, and how many names it may have operated under, but sandblasting on the building has revealed a "ghost sign" for a hotel.  Unfortunately, I can't read anything other than "hotel" on the sign.  The current owner intends to market the apartments under the name Hotel Virginia, but I do not know if that's what this sign said, or if parts of more than one sign are visible.

"HOTEL ENTRANCE"....right?

Could be. Right now, it looks like there is a store going in there, or perhaps already going in, called "Mash". I should update the photo when I have a chance.
