Regarding Originally a Wing of the Union Hotel. This historic property has housed several hotels through the years. The single-story, stuccoed brick structure was built by John Trollinger in 1850. The hotel originally extended to courthouse square. It has been named Trollinger Hotel, Orange Hotel, Union Hotel, and Brick Hotel at various times.
After the Civil War, the Graham Female Seminary was housed in the building, and later reverted back to a hotel.
Zebulon Vance stayed in the hotel during his 1876 campaign for Governor.
