Keeping up with past and present happenings in a remarkable small town.
I wish I would have been around to see this hotel. The picture of the lobby is awesome. Are there more pictures of The Nixon?
My mother and I would catch the bus to Pittsburgh from the Nixon Hotel, back in the 60's.
Many famous people went through this lobby including John L. Sullivan, Gentleman Jim Corbett, Walter Bergen/Charlie McArthy, William Benndix, President Warren G. Harding and famous broadway composer George M. Cohan.It was bulldozed illegallly by the City of Butler Redevelopment Authority in the 1970's.
