Hotel Park, Dale Street, Roxbury, Mass., undated

PC001.02.01.USMA.2540.0060.007 (RS331)

Description

The four-story Hotel Park is seen at 101 Dale Street at the intersection with Regent Street in Roxbury, Massachusetts. Built in 1884, probably by the contractor Melville C. Grant, this was an apartment hotel that accomodated long-term residents and provided services such as a dining room. John P. Santry owned the property in the 1890s. Pilasters flank the front door. Brackets support a sunburst pediment that is matched by a similar pediment on the top of the roof just below which is a panel inscribed with the date of 1884. Patterned brick panels adorn the facade.
