The new U.S. Hotel

The United States Hotel in Jacksonville is pictured shortly after its completion in 1881. Built on the site of an earlier hotel of the same name that burned in 1873, the hotel was operated by Mme. Jeanne DeRoboam Holt. Legend has it that she married brickmaker George Holt with this hotel project in mind. At the right are the salesman's sample rooms of the rival New State Hotel.
