The San Marco Hotel

San Marco Hotel

This hotel was located on what is now the Visitors Center and garage parking. Many of the “aerial” photos of the fort and northern parts of downtown from that period were taken from one of these towers.

The hotel was destroyed by fire on November 7, 1897. Arson was suspected as noted in this article published the next day in the New York Times.
