1929: THE STACY TRENT HOTEL

The Stacy Trent and the Hotel Hildebrecht were the two "IN" places back in Trenton's golden age of the 20's through the 40's. From the "HOTELS" folder in the Local History Collection, this combination of photos showing the late, great Stacy Trent, and the building which was demolished to make room for the new Trenton meeting, greeting, and living place.

KEEP THOSE COMMENTS COMING,
VISITORS! THEY ADD TO THE HISTORIC
VALUE OF EACH POST.

HI TOM....I DELIVERED MAIL AND PICKED UP MAIL FROM THE STACY TRENT IN THE 1940S AND WAS ALWAYS IMPRESSED WITH THE LOBBY AND THE LOWER LEVEL WITH THEIR MARBLE STAIRWAY AND DECOR. REALLY AN OUTSTANDING STRUCTURE. REGARDS.

I too loved the lobby. I remember going there for a function and saw a beautiful suit on display. My mother, Sarah Logan, could really sew and recreated it for me. The Stacy-Trent was such a classy place and so typical of Trenton when I was growing up.

Tom - Back in the day when your parents planned your wedding, my wedding reception was held in the Ballroom of the Stacy-Trent Hotel 48 years ago! It was beautiful! Lakeside Girl

Every Thursday, on our lunch break, my 2 friends and I would treat ourselves to the Hildebrecht. We always had the shrimp cocktail with "pink" sauce. Made you feel kind of special. My mom & dad went to the Stacy Trent on Saturday evenings with their crowd and always dressed to the nines.
