SCENIC ADAIR CO. Art, History. Page House, a good place to stay many years ago

2006-05-12 - Columbia - Photo Linda Waggener. "PAGE HOUSE, BEST HOTEL IN THIS SECTION, Jas. T. Page, Proprietor." read an ad for this one-time Columbia hotel. The ad said, "This hotel is large, roomy, and elegantly furnished. The table at all times is supplied with the best the market affords, and strict attention is paid guests. Elegant rooms for traveling salesmen. Location, North west Corner, public square." The Page house burned down unfortunately, but thanks to the late artist and Columbia First Lady Maggie Murphy, its likeness hangs in the Trabue-Russell House along with many other items of historical note. The Trabue-Russell House was the site of an Adair Arts Council board meeting with Mayor Pat Bell Wednesday evening.The possibility that the House become the home of the arts council is under study. If you have information about the Page House please use the 'submit-a-story link' in the site menu and tell us about it.Related Story No. story.
