The Modern Puritans F.H.P. ?

I was wondering what kind of organization the Modern Puritans were and managed to dig up some information that they were essentially a life insurance company.

Atlantic Hotel

When they sold off the furnishings before demolition I obtained one of the octagonal pieces of marble from the lobby floor. I use it for the base of a statue.

The hotel was located here where the refuse truck is parked. The Atlantic was built in 1859, and was used briefly as a Confederate command headquarters in 1861. It burned in 1867 and was rebuilt. It burned again in 1902 and again was rebuilt. It finally closed in 1976, was torn down and replaced by a rather ugly building. However, down the street and next door, the building with the awning still stands, but greatly altered. But it does have a rather nice Irish pub.
