    This hotel was previously known as the Denny Hotel, before the Panic of 1893 halted work before the completion of the interior. The hotel was left uncompleted for a decade, before developer James A. Moore bought the hotel. He completed and renamed the 100 room building as the Washington Hotel. Moore personally handed over the first hotel room keys to President Teddy Roosevelt on May 23, 1903. The building survived only until 1906, when the western part of Denny Hill was leveled. Today the historic Moore Theater occupies this location.PH Coll 481.48. less
