Buckingham Hotels

In 1917, the Hotel Culbreth was just one of seven Buckingham County hotels listed in the Virginia Business Directory and Gazatteer.  They were:

Arvonia Inn, Arvonia

Buckingham House, Buckingham – likely the “Buckingham Hotel,” a.k.a. “The Moseley House”

Hardiman Hotel, Dillwyn

Hotel Culbreth, Dillwyn

Hotel Dillwyn, Dillwyn

Ranson Hotel, Dillwyn

The majority of them left few traces in the local or Richmond newspapers.  On October 16, 1908, however, The Farmville Herald noted that “Miss Susie Reynolds, the fair young daughter of Mr. Archer Reynolds of this place [Arcanum], was married at Hotel Dillwyn on Saturday last to Mr. James Marks, an industrious young farmer of Curdsville.”
