Regarding Old Natchez Hotel. The dramatic looking Natchez Hotel (no longer standing) was built in 1891. Within a few years, parts of the building began to disappear in stages. The tent-like dome went first in a storm, and a 1926 fire destroyed most of the structure. A remnant of the building, adorned with cast-iron masks, survives on Franklin Street.
Also see . . . An old post card of the Natchez Hotel at Franklin and Pearl Streets in Natchez, Mississippi. The hotel opened for business on September 1, 1891. This view shows the building after its spectacular corner turret was removed. The domed turret was destroyed in a fire in the 1920s, but the hotel managed to stay in business until the mid-1960s. It was demolished without ceremony. (Submitted on December 7, 2018, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
