Macom's Hotel of New Brunswick NJ, Aug 1872-1909

144 years ago today "Macom's Hotel" openned in New Brunswick, New Jersey.  My great great grandfather, Samuel Macom, ran a fine establishment.  The landmark building had been there from 1840 (previously Neilson House and later Klein's Hotel) until it was demolished in 1985 to make way for high rise luxury apartments.  This historic NJ site was purposely left to fall into dilapidation so the city could make some money on it (see Corruption).  Anyway, here is a rendering of it from my great uncle J. Morgan Macom.  He was a popular artist/illustrator in his day that died at the age of 29 due to yellow fever complications from climbing Pike's Peak.
