Ben Moore Hotel and Malden Brothers Barber Shop
About Ben Moore Hotel and Malden Brothers Barber Shop
The four-story Ben Moore Hotel offered food & lodging, a safe place for meetings, and a vibrant social life free from the bigotry and hostilities of the racism of the 1940s, ‘50s and ’60s.
An evocative barbershop remains intact, full of Civil Rights-era news clippings, pictures and portraits, including one of its most famous customers, the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. It was there he received one of his final haircuts.
The Dexter Avenue Church Parsonage, where he lived for many years, is just yards away.
Today, except for the barbershop, the hotel is vacant.
