HISTORY ON TAP SERIES! #1: THE EMPIRE HOTEL
Thursday, June 25th
5:30 - 7:30 PM
The Empire Hotel
220 S. Main Street
Salisbury, North Carolina 28144
Please join us Thursday, June 25th for the first of the 'History on Tap' series, with History of the Empire Hotel. 'History on Tap' at the Empire Hotel will include a special insider tour and craft beer pairing.
Walking through the Empire Hotel is like a trip in a time machine, back in history. Through every corridor, up every stairway, around every corner waits one more piece of evidence, a reminder of past elegance.
A visitor can still picture a lobby furnished with big, black leather chairs or a ballroom filled with chandeliers and midnight dancers.
The claw-foot tubs left behind suggest nights of luxurious baths. Bricked-in mantels recall a turn-of-the-century time when cozy fires flickered in every room.
The Empire Hotel was once the place for orchestras, commerce, fine dining and sterling conversation. Writers used words such as "sumptuous," "first-class" and "fashionable" to describe this place.
Let 'History on Tap' take you on a trip back in time to The Empire Hotel in historic downtown Salisbury, NC.

The Meroney Theatre opened in 1905 on South Main Street. Such notables as Sarah Bernhardt, Lillian Russell, John Phillip Sousa, and William Howard Taft appeared on the Meroney's stage. The Old Hickory Club, a gentleman's social club and the Masons have shared this building. In 1910, the theatre was sold to Clay Grubb. The Bijou, the first motion picture theatre in Salisbury, opened in one of the retail spaces on the Meroney's first floor in 1907 and a new trend had begun. The theatre has at times been known as the Grubb Theatre, the Colonial, the Strand, the State, the Center, and the Fotosho. In 1995, it was refurbished and again became the Meroney Theatre, home to the Piedmont Players.
Receive your two tickets for free craft beer at the Third Event by filling out the RSVP Form or calling 704-636-0103.

Congratulations to all winners of HSF's 2015 Historic Preservation Awards
Since 1983, Historic Salisbury Foundation has celebrated local historic preservation successes by presenting Preservation Awards to individuals, companies, and projects demonstrating various areas of excellence in preservation. This event is typically held in May, which is National Preservation Month.
Nominations are accepted from the public throughout the year and reviewed by a committee of preservation leaders in Rowan County. Projects completed within the past three years in Rowan County are eligible to receive an award.
HSF's Preservation Awards are made from bricks salvaged from the 1896 Grimes Mill, a roller mill which was lost to fire in January 2013.
