Historical Whiskey Pocket Flask, Beula Villa Dance Hall, Sulphur Well, KY
Whiskey pocket flask discovered between the floors of the Beula Villa Dance Hall at Historical Sulphur Well, KY.
The Beula Villa Dance Hall Motel was a very popular tourist attraction up until the early 50s. People would travel for miles to swing their lady around the magnificent dance floor, spend the night in the motel and dine on country ham for breakfast. I vaguely remember those good ole days but knew couples that lived for Saturday night at Beula Villa! I used to wish I was old enough to go with them! The motel closed before I became old enough to wine and dine. Hum.. Is this the reason I never learned to dance? The sulphur water fountain at Sulphur Well is still enjoyed by hundreds of visitors each year. When you are traveling through Metcalfe County stop and have a picnic at the facilities in Sulphur Well or enjoy country ham and red-eye gravy still served at Porters restaurant.
These flask were probably disposed of by a worker during the late 1800s when the motel was built. These collectible bottles were found in between the floor joists of first and second floor.
We have a total of three of these with original corks. Corks are crumbling from age.
We were told these would turn purple in color if exposed to sunlight. These have been in the dark for years and we have not tested to see if the flasks would change color. Most collectors want the original color of glass.
