Bang, H. A. & W. F. -These enterprising hotel men purchased the well known Kensington Hotel in Saratoga Springs, in September, 1897, and conduct it upon the best up-to-data methods. They are widely known and experienced hotel proprietors. The Kensington is one of the largest and most select houses for which Saratoga Springs is famous and is delightfully situated and handsomely appointed, having accommodations for four hundred guests, and is open from June to October each year, while its rates are extremely moderate when compared with its splended accommodations. Both the Messrs. Bang are natives of New York city. H. A. Bang is a graduate of the Stevens Institute of Technology, with the degree of mechanical engineer and is a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers; also of the American Institute of Mining Engineers. Their grandfather, Henry J. Bang, kept a hotel at Bingen on the Rhine, but came to America with his son about 1847, and in 1853 was conducting a wine importing business in New York city, also the well known Bang's Restaurant, in which he was succeeded by his sons, one of which, Henry J., father of H. A. and W. F., became proprietor of the Sturtevant House in 1893, where he continued up to the time of his death, February 28, 1890; since then the hotel has been under the management of his sons. The Messrs. Bang are members of the Hotel Men's Association, New York city; Hotel Men's Association, New York State, and Merchants' Association, New York city.
