Get your bearings from the spire of
St. Paul's on the far left. Both photos were
taken near the front steps
of City Hall.
This grand hotel, six stories tall and covering a full city block, was designed by Archimedes Russell.
It opened in 1892. The hotel was once a favorite watering hole for local politicians
and was reputed to have the longest bar in the county.
The Yates was torn down in 1971 in the hopes that
something better would be built in its place. The site remains a parking
lot to this day.
