Weiner's Hotel: An American dream

Great blurb on the "Moodus that Was." It's hard to capture the spirit and mood of the late 50's and early 60's in Moodus. I had worked at Weiner's for 5 years during summers in those times.. A very good story of an American dream of hard work and sorry to say a sad end. The hotel was a very vital part of the summer scene in the late 50's and early 60's. They fell off the map when tragically the owners, Milt and Pearl Weiner, died in their 40's a few years apart. The Weiners were longtime Moodus residents and had 4 children.

On your resorts page you refer to the Leiber resort as formerly Leiber's, now Frank Wolf's. My grandmother Frances Wolf, wife of Anton Wolf, sold the resort to Leiber sometime in the late 40's. Frank
