In his more than 50 years of real estate ventures, Benson Fogle says his purchase of the Shenandoah Hotel building in downtown Martinsburg stands alone - and not in a good way. “I've never had a property I wasn't able to find tenants for until I ran into the Shenandoah,” Fogle said in a recent interview. Built in the 1920s by community investors, the hotel, its restaurant and ballroom once was a civic and social center for Martinsburg. Former U.S. Sen. Robert F. Kennedy visited and actors Debbie Reynolds and Robert Mitchum once stayed at the five-story landmark on the corner of Martin and Queen streets.
