Death: Dec. 11, 1916

Businesswoman. She owned and operated the Lexington Hotel in Richmond, which she purchased in 1889, and within ten years had saved enough money to build her own hotel. She built the Hotel Richmond, which became one of the most elegant and popular hotels in Richmond, on the western edge of Capitol Square in 1904, and by 1916 the property was estimated to be worth $1,000,000. She was one of Richmond's most prominent and visible businesswomen. (bio by: Garver Graver)
