The White Palace

The White Palace

Happening upon The White Palace in Wheeling, West Virginia, was an amazing highlight of October’s US roadtrip. Located in Wheeling Park, it’s part events venue, part David Lynch film, part Matthew Barney artwork. The massive room we ran into, while looking for a bathroom, was called The Hall of Champions. The Hall of Champions was pretty dark inside, and the walls were lined with old sports memorabilia from local teams–old photos, footballs, jerseys, etc. Surreal. Awesome.

Aunt Bonnie shared girlhood memories of being dropped off at the park countless times by Grandpa Binger. It was great.

The White Palace shall not be confused with White Palace, a DVD I have owned for 5+ years but never watched.
