Windsor Hotel 1880s

The Windsor Hotel was located at the northeast corner of Dwight & Front Streets. The hotel was erected by William Whiting who was head of the Whiting Paper Co. Whiting would go on to serve as mayor of the city and later Congressman. 

Also partially visible behind the hotel on Front Street (right) is the Holyoke Opera House. The hotel was destroyed by fire in 1899 while the Opera House stood for many years when it too was destroyed by fire in October of 1967.
