  1. Coffee Shot? Was that a typo, or the name of the coffee shop?


  2. This hotel is boss! Yeah!


  3. Is this still standing?


  4. Stayed in the Lamar when our band from Meadville marched in the Calf Scramble Parade, 1959 or sixty.


  5. There is an article in the Meridian paper from August that indicates the hotel was named for LQC Lamar.
