Bust of General Longstreet

In its heyday, the Piedmont Hotel was an imposing three-story building with 36 rooms in two wings joined by a connecting structure, which contained the stairwells and, on the first floor, the lobby/ballroom. General James Longstreet, commander of the old Confederate First Corps and Robert E. Lee's second in command, owned and operated the hotel.

The Longstreet Society is dedicated to the study of the life of Lt. General James Longstreet, CSA.
