Part of the Manor Inn complex at Albermarle Park is the Clover Cottage.
It was designed by Bradford Gilbert, who up until his death in 1911, was the supervising architect for the project at Albermarle Park.
This cottage was constructed at the same time as the inn in 1898. It was built as a summer vacation cottage and is now privately owned.
The newest addition to the Hotel Fresno artifact collection, a bell hop’s ID pin (as seen being worn by the Hotel Fresno bell hops in this Pop Laval photo, taken in front of the hotel entrance in 1913)!
Exterior shot of the Hotel Fresno, (1910’s/20’s). The Hotel Fresno was built in 1912. Architect: Edward J. Foulkes. The Hotel Fresno was nationally famous and part of the circuit traveled by vaudeville performers such as: Al Jolson, Eddie Cantor, Bill Bonjangles, Fanny Brice, and Buster Keaton. While traveling for soliciting his vote for presidency, Richard Nixon made a largely coveted stop at the Hotel Fresno. I’m the 1970’s the hotel was turned into senior housing, and in 1983 it closed for renovations and has sat vacant ever since. APEC, LLC of Los Angeles has plans for a $23 million renovation to turn the hotel into apartments on the upper floors and retail/restaurant space on the first floor. Once renovation completes I plan to loan my artifact collection for permanent display in the lobby for others to enjoy for years to come.
Probably going out on a limb here....? But it seems to me that it wouldn’t be right, of the almighty.....to strike a fella down for yodeling in church! Even if it is possibly, the oldest Catholic Church in Minnesota ha. It’ll come as no surprise to learn that the acoustics in this place are out-fn-standing!
The Gerlitz Home, built in 1905. Located at 121 North U St and listed on the Local Historic Register. After a fire and at risk of being demolished, the home was purchased and just finished a beautiful restoration. Swipe for the incredible after photo! #fresnohistory#downtownfresno#historichome#historicregister
An Atlanta favorite since 1929! The historic Fox Theater! An experience in itself, but it brings along attractions like concerts, movies, plays, & special events. This was a magical Christmas event with a sing along, Mighty Mo (the Fox organ) playing, & showing of Miracle on 34th Street! So much fun....and they had it snowing outside....and even inside during "Let it Snow!"
