This postcard features a black and white image of the three story Hotel Macon in Macon, Mississippi. The hotel features ornate porch columns and balcony railings. The two wide dormers on the roof feature ornate moldings and rails. Men are pictured standing in the yard and on the porch of the hotel and young trees appear to be supported by wood crate structures.
