Tilden Hall

Built between 1922 and 1924, Tilden Hall was once a "high-class" apartment hotel.

The five-story, Colonial Revival-style Tilden Hall apartment building was designed by noted architect Frederic B. Pyle (1867-1934) and constructed between 1922 and 1924 by the P.F. Gormley Company as a “high-class” apartment hotel.

As such, Tilden Hall provided a range of amenities, including food service to residents in one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments. Financial problems at Gormley Company slowed construction while the property was auctioned to the Asher Fireproofing Company, one of Gormley’s subcontractors and the holder of a mechanic’s lien. Upon completion in 1924, the property was initially managed by the William H. Saunders Company before being purchased by Maddux, Marshall, Moss & Mallory, Inc., the managers of a half-dozen other apartment-hotels nearer downtown. In later years, the property became less of a luxury apartment hotel and more of a more typical apartment house as it passed through several hands.
