SELIGMAN, Ariz. — Plans for the historic Cottage Hotel north of Route 66
in Seligman call for transforming the building into a full-time visitor center
But before that happens, the Seligman Historical Society will do a survey for
asbestos and lead paint. A grant from the Arizona Department of Environmental
Quality will aid the efforts.
The $9,000 grant comes from a fund for property that suffers from known or
perceived environmental contamination.
The historical society said the hotel built in 1912 has housed railroad
workers, cowboys and expectant mothers. It is open to the public only a few days
The society said it plans to renovate the hotel to display historic artifacts
from the community before turning it into a visitor center and museum.
