    the hotel in the 30’s-40’s. My dad and his brother and sister lived in the hotel as well. Took a trip to visit the John C. Coleman hotel last summer.

    I used to get my hair cut at the barbershop here when I lived there in the 80’s.

    There’s still a barber shop in the corner of the building. I take my boys (9 & 11 years old) there to get a proper haircut when I’m down that way.

    I wonder how many locals were ever even in it, except those who might have worked there, back when it was a functioning hotel. When I was a kid in the ’50s and ’60s the po’ folk would hardly go into Powel’s Barber Shop on the north corner of it.
