History of the Westin in brick

4 posts in this topic

Took the below photo this morning looking up the side of the Westin (Court Street side). There is somewhat of dividing line in the middle, and the bricks to the right of that dividing line are one color/shade from top to bottom. On the left side of that dividing line, the bricks are one shade at the bottom, then another in the middle, then a third on top. I've never noticed, maybe some of you have and maybe you've posted it. For the history experts on UP, was the Westin built onto? Multiple times? If so, what year(s)?

No, the structure, in its present form, was built at one time in the late 1920's.

The backside of it used to be painted white, and of course the Hotel Poinsett sign at the top used to be lit at night.

Thanks. That explains the top levels of brick in the different shade. The middle levels of brick must have been an addition also at some point.
