Excellent!

Nice to see an old, beautiful building brought back to life rather than bulldozed into history.

Absolutely Beautiful

It's so great the porch is still there. I think that's the most beautiful cast iron work I've ever seen!

Bravo for not tearing it down just because it's "old"

So many beautiful buildings we see here have met the wrecking ball long before we get to see them and it's just sad.

Great to See

That this handsome building has been able to survive despite the many changes.

Flip-flop

First the Brantley Hotel from 1837 until after the Civil War, then St. James Hotel until 1892, then a warehouse, now St. James Hotel again since 1997. It's located at 1200 Water Avenue in Selma.

Open for business.

The hotel was restored in 1997 and is open for business. Supposedly haunted.
