Thomas Jefferson Tower, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit formed by Birmingham residents to preserve and restore the Thomas Jefferson Tower. The Thomas Jefferson Hotel (later the Cabana Hotel, then Leer Tower) is a 20-story building, formerly a 350-room hotel, completed in 1929 at 1631 2nd Avenue North on the western side of downtown Birmingham, Alabama. Designed by architect David O. Whilldin, the Thomas Jefferson stood as one of Birmingham’s most luxurious hotels. It featured an ornate marble lobby, a large ballroom, and a rooftop mooring mast intended for use by airships. “Southern charm and hospitality at its happy best, wonderful best. That’s the pride of Birmingham The Hotel Thomas Jefferson,” an early newspaper ad boasted. Bill Muellenbach was a 23-year-old bellboy in 1936, when he says the hotel was tightly supervised by a “snobby” manager and his wife. The hotel’s luxury status made it a prime spot for celebrities and distinguished guests including presidents Calvin Coolidge and Herbert Hoover, entertainers Jerry Lee Lewis and Ray Charles, and sports icons Pete Rose and Bear Bryant.
