Remarks: This hotel was stated to be on the east side. The building was leased to L.R. Norman, a locomotive engineer. The dining room was under the supervision of Mrs. Cowan, a lay of 11 years experience in the hotel business in Ludlow, Ky. The offices, reading room, cigar stand and dining room were on the ground floor.

The building was once used as a Family Crisis Center.
