City unveils sign to commemorate landmark building

By From page A3 | September 27, 2013

Before being demolished in 2000, the 1920s-era Terminal Hotel Building at the northeast corner of Second and G Streets was one of downtown Davis’ finest pieces of local history.

Now, a dozen years after its demolition, Davisites can get a feel for what this corner of downtown once looked like, as several local historians have designed and helped install a sign that commemorates the building and its history.

The sign will be unveiled officially during a brief ceremony at 10:30 a.m. Saturday at Second and G streets, according to Bob Bowen, the city’s public relations manager. The display, “Remembering the Terminal Hotel,” was installed by city workers last week at the northeast corner of Second and G streets so it can be read while facing where the historic structure once stood, according to a city spokesman.

“It’s the location, this was the heart of the downtown at Second and G streets,” said Rich Rifkin, a member of the city’s Historical Resources Management Commission and the individual who, along with local historian John Lofland, helped shape the concept of the sign.
