PLACE

Description of where the hotel was.

  • 184 Station

My grandmother said that the hotel was on the railroad tracks. She said most of the boarders worked at the Bear Brand hosiery factory just accross the tracks. About 1960, there was a 2 story Speigels store about a block away, with an escalator. The hotel had been there all her life and she didn't expect it to go anywhere, so we don't have any pictures. I heard it burned in a fire that ruined a few buildings.
