Item Information

Title:
Hotel Hamilton Southbridge Massachusetts
Description:
Located on the corner of High and Ash streets, in the Globe Village section of Southbridge; the Hamilton Hotel is an imposing building. A three story edifice with a porch. There are three dormer windows in the pitched roof. Two chimney stacks flank the sides of the dormers. A sign with 'hotel' written on it is posted on the porch. Stone steps lead to the main entrance from the raised sidewalk. A water hydrant is situated oat the driveway entrance. Other smaller buildings, set back from the hotel, are shown. Trees frame the structure. A sign 'Ash Street' is attached to a fence opposite the hotel. In 1902, William E. Hardenber was the proprietor. Globe Village takes its name from the Globe Manufacturing Co., the predecessor of the Hamilton Woolen Co. An unsuccessful attempt was made to separate the center of Southbridge from the Globe Village section of town, in 1856.
