Angela Harrington received Iowa Rural Development Council's Impact on Place honor for her work developing Hotel Grinnell, a converted 97-year-old junior high school in the city, according to a release. The school's former classrooms now feature upscale hotel rooms with soaring windows, vaulted ceilings and hardwood floors. The locker room houses the bar and outdoor patio. The old school gym and historic theater are wedding, conference/meeting and entertainment venues.
