City Directories and History: Henry Alexander, Anna Brown, Mary Dunlap
The Hotel Shandon was on the west side of North Congress street and had rooms above several of the commercial stores. Other businessmen and professionals rented rooms there to conduct business.
The Rock Hill Herald reported on July 18, 1900 – “Mr. J. Green Sadler of Rock Hill has leased the Fairview Hotel on the hill in Chester and will move his family to that city. Many improvements are being made and it will now be called the New Chester Hotel. He will be assisted by his brother J. Ed Sadler, who has worked as a clerk at the Arlington Hotel in Charlotte and the Carolina Hotel in Rock Hill.”
The list of individuals living in the 1907 York City Directory was not identified as living at any particular house number. When possible the individuals are listed per their known address. The 1912 directory lists J.E. Sadler as the proprietor.
