Artifact of the Month:
Club Loraine was a night club inside the Loraine Hotel. As far as we can tell, the Club ran from 1946 to 1947. There were only 3 mentions of the Club in the newspaper, a 1946 article about alcohol sales in the club, and 2 advertisements in 1947. The Loraine Hotel would be consumed by fire in 1949, taking a few businesses on Main & Lee along with it.
