Jackson, MS (PRWEB) May 06, 2013
Taylor Auction & Realty, Inc. is proud to offer the Roberts Walthall Hotel of Jackson, MS, formerly The Historic Edison Walthall Hotel, via an online auction. The bidding on this hotel will begin on May 9 at 8 A.M. and close on May 22 at 11 A.M.
The Roberts Walthall Hotel features 8 floors with 205 partially finished rooms, totaling about 100,000 square feet. It comes with a 4 floor parking garage with 200 spaces. This hotel also boasts a second floor banquet area, complete with a separate kitchen, totaling 7,200 square feet. There is also a swimming pool on the 5th floor.
The hotel was built in the early 1920s as the Jackson Baking Company, a large bakery. A group of enterprising businessmen saw opportunity in the popular first-floor tea room, and decided to transform the bakery into a hotel. The new hotel, opened in 1928, was named the Walthall Hotel after local Civil War hero and politician Edward Cary Walthall. The following decades saw additional enhancements and remodels to the hotel in an attempt to attract more business. However, as is the case with older downtown properties, the hotel closed in 2010. This is a great opportunity to participate in the revitalization process of Downtown Jackson, MS.
