Phoenix Hotel, 1913, Waycross

Originally constructed as a two-story brick hotel between 1890-92, the Spanish Mission Revival appearance of the Phoenix today was the work of local contractor V. C. Parker. The expansion of the property was precipitated by the rapid growth of Waycross as a regional rail transportation hub. When the renovation was completed, the Phoenix was second only to the LaGrande as the city’s most prominent hotel. When the LaGrande burned around 1915, the Phoenix became the leading hotel of the city.  It remained a hub of downtown for much of the 20th century, with a decline in rail traffic leading to its closure in the 1960s. It was recently restored by the Jones Company (Flash Foods) and is again an anchor of the historic district.
