Tilden-Hall’s Sad Demise February-March 1962

Destruction of Tilden-Hall Hotel, 1962.

Yesterday we showed the Tilden-Hall Hotel in its 1930s glory. The six-story hotel, located at the corner of Madison and Washington streets, was torn down by Peoples Bank (now Commerce) for a surface parking lot in 1962.
Seen here is the removal of the neon sign in mid-February 1962 and the razing of the ca. 1900 “pile of bricks” one month later.
