Information about the Richmond Hotel
The four-story Richmond Hotel located at Main and Court streets was considered one of the finest lodging places in upstate New York. It opened in 1889, replacing the St. James Hotel, which was destroyed in a fire in 1886. It became the fourth such lodging house on the same site, dating back to the Eagle Tavern which opened in 1823. It was named in honor of Mrs. Mary Richmond, widow of Dean Richmond, from whom the Batavia Hotel Company obtained the mortgage.
