Facts

  • This is considered to be Birmingham's first high-rise building, constructed only 16 years after the city was founded.
  • Although the hotel was billed as being fireproof, ironically it was destroyed by fire on July 21, 1894.
  • Named after Dr. Henry M. Caldwell, former president of the Elyton Land Company (the company responsible for the initial development of the city of Birmingham).
  • The Goodall-Brown Lofts can now be found atop the site formerly occupied by the hotel.
