Lane Ho­tel his­tory

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - VOICES -

The 42,000-square-foot build­ing at Sec­ond and Poplar streets in down­town Rogers was built in 1928 and opened as the Lane Ho­tel. It later be­came known as the Har­ris Ho­tel and Ho­tel Arkansas. The build­ing closed as a ho­tel in 1965.

The De­fend­ers of the Chris­tian Faith bought the build­ing in 1967 and opened it as The De­fender’s Town­house, be­gin­ning the build­ing’s use as a re­tire­ment home. Joe and Dera Keen bought it in 1977 and re­named it the Rogers Town­house. It was re­named Peachtree at the Lane in 1999.

Peachtree closed as a re­tire­ment home in Oc­to­ber 2003. KLS Leas­ing of Delaware, a com­pany af­fil­i­ated with the Wal­ton Fam­ily Foun­da­tion, bought the build­ing in 2015. The com­pany is leas­ing the build­ing to Haas Hall Academy.
