The Southerns Arrive In St. Louis

Monday, May 20, 2013


St. Nicolas Hotel circa 1870s

The Southern Base Ball Club, of New Orleans, arrived in the city last night, and are stopping at the St. Nicholas.  They play a match on Monday with the Unions, and on Tuesday with the Empires.
-Missouri Republican, August 15, 1869


The reference to the St. Nicholas is a bit puzzling.  The famous St. Nicholas Hotel in St. Louis was designed by Louis Sullivan and built in 1893 but it appears that there was an earlier St. Nicholas on Fourth Street that was in operation by the 1870s.  Based on the above piece from the Republican, it must have been open by 1869.

Definitely believe that which you said. Your
favorite justification appeared to be on the internet the simplest thing to be aware of.
I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries that they just do not
know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the
top as well as defined out the whole thing without having
side effect , people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more.

Thanks
