The past is the present for future generations who do not know their history

I never knew there was a Jefferson Hotel in Florence…

but here it is in the photo of Court Street made back in 1913. That was the most beautiful courthouse. They took it down in the 1960s, iirc.

    I have found a letterhead that says JEFFERSON HOTEL H.A.Ledbetter, Proprietor. It’s dated May 17, 1917. It has a poem or song typed on the back called “The Drummers Dream” The name on the front is hard to read but appears to be Hubert Mosley Mauer.
