This historic hotel used to take up a large portion of the block, in fact it was known as the "Wigton Hotel Block". The Hotel shared the block with a Masonic Temple that was at 117-119 State St. according to Wikipedia. The entire block was demolished in 1966.
Here is the entry:
"Masonic Temple (1884, 1961) This two-story building at 117-119 South State Street once formed the end of the Wigton Hotel Block. It was the home of the Masonic Hall from at least 1893 through the 1980s. The building was entirely remodeled in 1961, and the remainder of the block was demolished in 1966. In the 1980s, the Hart Masonic Lodge merged with the Shelby Lodge and used their facilities. The first floor of the building has a single off-center entrance. The second floor has three windows with stone slab sills."
