Randora Hotel

The Randora Hotel, owned by Randolph Wallace in the late 1950s-early 1960s, was another prominent Black-owned hotel. It was behind the Garfield, also owned by John R. Wallace on the opposite side. It was a well-known spot for hosting wedding receptions and other events in its banquet hall. Unlike the Garfield, it survived the 1963 blaze that claimed several Black businesses in the area.
