Hotel Lincoln

323 Main, Stroud, OK

East < GO > West

This building was originally Moss and Ingalls Drug Store. The original one story building was constructed during the 1910s or early 1920s. In 1924 they expanded the building and added the second story and it became the Hotel Lincoln. It seems like it may have been operated as the Hotel Stroud at some later point in time.

xThis pre-1940 rare and historic Seth Thomas cast iron sidewalk clock stands on the corner in front of the hotel. It may be called a sidewalk clock, but as you can see in these photos it is standing in the street not on the sidewalk. Tht's a bit puzzling. In a 1995 photo of the hotel the clock is nowhere to be seen, so why isn't it on the sidewalk?

x On the east side you can still read "Hotel Stroud" painted on the building. The hotel was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1995.
