Talbot Historical Society Project Rewind: Calling Room Service at the Hotel Avon



Maryland’s Hotel Avon on the corner of Dover and Harrison Streets was completed in 1891 and had steam heat and hot and cold, running water in the more expensive rooms! This impressive building was so badly damaged in a January 10,1944 fire that it had to be torn down. A. Johnson Grimes built the present Tidewater Inn on this site starting on January 27,1947! The grand opening was September 2nd, 1949 and it is still a centerpiece of Easton! Facts: “Easton Album” by Norman Harrington 1985. Photo from the Talbot Historical Society’s H. Robins Hollyday Collection. Contact: Cathy Hill cvhill@atlanticbb.net to share your old photos. Comment, Like our page and join THS!
