Historic Union Hotel to close

August 5, 2008 6:00:21 AM PDT
Flemington's historic Union Hotel is preparing to close, a victim of rising costs. The hotel played a prominent role in 1935 in what was called the "Trial of the Century."

Jurors hearing the case of the man accused of kidnapping and killing aviator Charles Lindbergh's son were sequestered there. Journalists also used the hotel, which is across from the Hunterdon County Courthouse, to file their stories.

The hotel's liquor license is expected to be transferred to another business next month.
