Patrick Henry Hotel Furniture Sale To Benefit Goodwill


The Patrick Henry in downtown Roanoke plans a public sale of items from the historic landmark, recently purchased by Ed Walker. Walker intends to create more than 100 apartments with offices and possibly retail space in the building.

Originally opened as a hotel in 1925, the building has been sitting idle for several years filled with furniture and antiques. While many of the items are of historical significance and will be used in the renovation, a substantial amount of furniture, fixtures, and equipment will be available to the public at a series of sales with proceeds benefiting Goodwill Industries of the Valleys and Habitat for Humanity in the Roanoke Valley.

The first sale will take place on Saturday, Dec. 12, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The one day event will feature small mementos such as original room keys, brass wall plaques, signature antiques and a sampling of art deco and traditional furniture.

The sale will be held at the Goodwill Jobs Campus located at 2502 Melrose Avenue in Roanoke. A larger sale with remaining items will be held in January of 2010 at the Roanoke Civic Center.

  2. This is the reason why there are many people who would want to make sure that they have budget for home improvements. Renovation may not always have to be overall as this may be too costly. You may still have the chance of renovating a certain part of your home and make the necessary improvements in it. This will already affect your home greatly as a room’s look would change the way that your home would generally look like. Keep up the great work and please stop by my custom bedroom furniture site sometime. Keep it up..
