—National Historic Register —An early stagecoach stop, The Grand Hotel, welcomed visitors with a tin-faced, two-story building, surrounded by shade trees, wooden sidewalks, and spacious lobby. In 1904 the building was purchased from William and Allie Neff and Anna Scott by Harry Burnett Sr. and renamed The New Grand in hopes of catering to a new clientele. The tin was replaced with white pressed brick and a third floor was added along with a restaurant, and the interior was completely refurnished. It retained its massive bar in the lobby and a ballroom to host civic and social groups. Burnett renamed it The St. Regis Hotel, and a large staircase replaced the bar in the lobby.
