In 1912, The Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad hired a British architect, Frederick Junius Sterner, to design a new hotel. The luxurious Greenbrier Hotel was completed c. September, 1913. The Springroom was one of a number of specialty rooms, and all were designed by the architect's sister, Maude Sterner. The arched bay window, the fountain, vaulted ceilings and the potted greenery added fineness to the elixir of sulphur water.
