Hotel Paxton, Omaha Nebraska 1942
The first Paxton Manor was built in 1882 and named after William Paxton, a local legend who made his fortune in cattle and trains. President McKinley and Buffalo Bill Cody stayed there. It was demolished in 1927 to make way for the new Hotel Paxton. It opened for business on June 26, 1929. With interior design by Marshall, Field and Company of Chicago, features included four dining rooms, a barbershop and a ballroom, along with amenities including elevators, telegraph and cable services, and a rooftop dog kennel with runways. Room rates started at $2.50 a night. The hotel closed in 1964 and the building reopened in 2004 as The Paxton Grand Condominium.
