[Posted by Dave Haber on Monday, 04/27/09 11:04 am] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]

According to Bob Bartel, once again the former home of Louise Caldwell Harrison is up for sale. Without much prior notice to anyone, the Benton, Illinois, city fathers and those who have their Beatles collections on display are hoping someone will come to Benton and buy the Hard Days Nite Bed & Breakfast.

Bob Bartel was the person who discovered the home was to be torn down, back in December of 1994, to make way for a parking lot. With the help of many Beatle Fans worldwide, it was saved from the wrecking ball. Since then the home has been turned into a great show place for those who want to spend some time at the place George Harrison spent two weeks in February 1964, right before he and his bands mates took the USA by storm.

The Hard Days Nite Bed & Breakfast has John, Paul, George and Ringo rooms, along with a small collection of Beatles memorabilia from Louise Harrison and others who have allowed them to be shown on loan there. Last year, the second Beatle to visit Benton, Pete Best with his band, delighted fans with a great concert, and plans are already underway for this years GeorgeFest.

Now's your chance to be a owner of Beatles history. If you'd like a to own a part of the legand of the Beatles and their early history in Pre-Beatles invasion in the USA, as well as Louise Harrison's former home full of Beatles history from 1963-1968, contact the City of Benton, Mayors Office for more information or the local historic commission who will put you in contact of the people who have it listed for sale.
