Hagerstown: An Illustrated Description,

Hotels Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information


products which find their market at Hagerstown, the manufactured articles of the various factories, the sales of the jobbing houses, clothing and shoe houses, &c, &c, the volume of business is such as would make a showing which would not be discreditable to a much larger city.

There are four large and well equipped hotels and numerous smaller ones, besides excellent boarding houses. Many families receive private boarders in the summer months, so there is ample accommodations for all who come. The prices are, of course, very much less than the same accommodations would cost in the larger cities.

The new hotel erected by ex Gov. Wm. T. Hamilton, which will be opened to the public during the present year, will be the finest hotel in Maryland, outside of Baltimore city, in all its appointments. Indeed, it will have very few equals in Baltimore. Fitted up with elevators —elegantly furnished, with the most comfortable reading rooms and, in fact, every luxury which modern skill can suggest. The Baldwin House, which is a new building, has recently been fitted up with a passenger elevator, the walls of the bar-room, dining-room and office have been elaborately and artistically decorated, the hotel has been enlarged, and is now one of the most elegant and best furnished in the State.
