This book covers the entire history of Richmond's fabulous and historic Jefferson Hotel, the people who stayed there, the people who worked there, the people who owned it and the stories and anecdotes of things that happened there. The author has interviewed some very interesting people from the hotel's past, including the families of previous owners and managers, going back to 1895, two girls who were rescued from a major fire there in 1944, the boy who used to fix the clocks in the main lobby, and the next to last owner who partnered with Billy Joel (among others) to renovate it.
