Last October, we paid a visit to the Rockport Inn for a Tri-State Bucket List video. We had an absolutely AMAZING meal at McKenzie's and learned a lot of cool history about the place.

It was fitting to visit in October since the place is HAUNTED, which is too cool.

Sadly, the historic old Rockport Inn sustained heavy fire damage Thursday morning--so much so, in fact, that part of the first floor collapsed, according to 14News/WFIE.

Thankfully, the owners plan to rebuild.

Our Tri-State Bucket List video from last fall will give you a good idea of WHY it's so important that the Rockport Inn will spring back to life in the future:
