Description

Background view of the hotel, located on the far left corner of the photograph, pictured with several other businesses, including the New York Store, along Main Street in Jerome, Arizona.

The hotel was built in 1898 by David Connor. After the hotel had burned down twice, Connor, who had fire insurance, was determined to have an upscale “lodging establishment” and other related businesses and built the building once again in 1898, with a stone foundation and brick walls. The second floor featured 20 upscale rooms with electricity and individual wood stoves to rent for the very upscale price of a dollar a day. The first floor offered activities to pass one’s free time in an entertaining fashion, including a barroom, card rooms, and billiard tables. The hotel also offered a bus to take guests to the train depot.

Today, it is still in business and known as The Connor Hotel. Source: Haunted Houses.com.
