1889. Parksley Land and Improvement Company. Parksley, VA

"Minerva Parker...has made preliminary sketches for an inn, at Parksley, VA, for the Parksley Land and Improvement Company. The inn will contain about fifty rooms. All of the three floors to be reached by an elevator. The entire house to be heated by steam and open fire places." (1889) Parksley, located on the Eastern Shore of Virginia, was a railroad town established by Pennsylvania Railroad officials from Philadelphia. A fire in the town in 1896 may have destroyed the inn building.
