Urban Sites

Pavillion Hotel Pavillion Hotel, pdf [LP 03-001] Listed 1989/11/27

Constructed in 1887 in Taylor, the Pavillion Hotel is significant for its association with the commercial development of the village and as a representative of first generation hotels built between 1854 and 1900. The hotels built during this period, as exemplified by the Pavillion, were typically two-story, wood-frame buildings. In many instances these commercial structures were constructed in anticipation of the railroad passing through town, or in response to business activity that resulted from an existing railroad line. Not only is the Pavillion a good example of a first generation wood-frame hotel, it is also a rare example of a hotel that continued to operate despite the fact that the railroad bypassed the community.
