Also see . . . Patrick Henry Hotel (Wikipedia). Taking its name from the American Founding Father Patrick Henry, the 300-room hotel celebrated its grand opening on November 10, 1925, with over 2,000 people in attendance. The Patrick Henry name was actually chosen in a naming contest, and the winner was a young Roanoker, John Payne, who went on to become a Hollywood star in the 1940s, appearing in Miracle on 32nd Street, among others. Its transformation into apartments began in late 2009. The $20 million renovation was completed in June 2011 and includes 134 apartment units, a restaurant, and retail/office space.
