The old hotel standing at 110 College St. in Buffalo was built about 1908. It was one of two hotels serving the town around the turn of the century. It’s now a private residence. The National Register of Historic Places lists the building by the name McClain Hotel, which it describes as a “gable-front, five bay, asymmetrical plan, two-story frame building built circa 1908.” It’s importance, the organization says, is due to its “association with early 20th century commerce in Buffalo.” In 1923, the hotel was purchased by J.H. McClain. The McClain family operated the business until 1945 except for a brief period in the 1920s, when it was owned and operated by C.H. Dixon. Evidence exists that it was called The Dixon Hotel at that time. Another hotel called the Beauchamp Hotel was located a block away but that building was razed in the 1960s.
