The Atno owned Brooklyn Hotel around 1898, located in the Brooklyn section of Stanhope
(later  Hopatcong).  Unfortunately,  like so many wooden structures around the lake, the Brooklyn Hotel burned down in 1901.


THE ATNO FAMILY
Benjamin Knapp Atno, Sr. started the Brooklyn Hotel during the 1870s in the Brooklyn section of Stanhope near Lake Hopatcong, which became a popular tourist destination at the turn of the century. Later, his son Elmer Atno was the proprietor until it burned down during the winter of 1901.

There is a very good article about the history of the area titled "Lake Hopatcong: The Town by the Lake"
at the Lake Hopatcong municipal web site.
