  1. According to old WPA guidebooks inn 1930s this landmark had 2 plaques on the walls of the hotel, one describing that Henry Clay died here, iif anyone would research their whereabouts if the plaques still exist, it would be beneficial to the City’s history,
    Note that Lincoln assassin John Wilkes Booth stayed here, as during the CivilWar it catered to the Southerners.
