Jacksonian Hotel

(1919 - 1973)

The Jacksonian Hotel was the third hotel to stand on its location at the southwest quadrant of the Scottsville Square.  This brick structure contained 38 rooms, each with a bath, plus a dining room, kitchen, and lobbies.  the hotel is said to have been named either in honor of Andrew Jackson or after the Jackson Highway on which it was located, now Highway 100.  It is believed that the hotel was designed by R. B. Tuberville, an architect in nearby Bowling Green, Kentucky.  It was apparently built by a group of local businessmen who formed the Scottsville hotel Company during the local oil boom.  During the early years the hotel was often filled to capacity.   In subsequent years the hotel increasingly ran into financial difficulties and ownership changed twice, once in 1932 and again in 1971.  The building was officially closed in 1973 and razed in the same year.  Today the Allen County Library occupies the site.
