(2016) Enlarge Present day Read House Hotel sits on the same site as the Old Crutchfield House which also served as hotel during the Civil War:

The Sheraton Read House Hotel on 827 Broad Street in Chattanooga sits on a site that has been occupied by hotels for over 160 years. It was first built in 1847 as the Old Crutchfield House and was used as a hospital by Union Troops in 1863. In 1867, a fire burned the entire hotel to the ground. Dr. John T. Read decided to construct a new hotel in the same area where the original met its fate. The new hotel would be constructed in a Gregorian architectural design in the year of 1926 and became the current Read House Hotel. Read House was renovated in 2004 and is currently the Sheraton Read House Hotel.
