Blackstone Hotel and The Blackstone Building

The Blackstone Building houses the Tyler Chamber of Commerce, as well as several businesses. The Blackstone Hotel stood immediately to the south of the Blackstone Building and was imploded in 1985. The old hotel site has been a parking lot ever since that time.

The Blackstone Building was constructed after the hotel was built, and though owned by the same people, it always was strictly an office building. Furthermore, although next door to the hotel, the Blackstone Building was a free-standing, self-contained structure.

You can see images of the Blackstone Hotel in the postcard section of my website Past Glimpses of Tyler, Texas, which can be found at URL http://home.sprynet.com/~tylertexas/ .
