Daniel Hoffman built the Hoffman Hotel in 1852 in Dallas, NC, across from the courthouse. With 44 rooms, it was the largest and best known of several hotels where pioneer politicians, lawyers, judges, businessmen and farmers stayed while attending county court.
It is an excellent surviving example of the Greek Revival Style, which was inspired by the renewed interest in ancient Greek architecture.
The Hoffman Hotel currently has a two story porch supported by six slender columns and a gabled roof that was added after the original construction, which is typical of Greek Revival style buildings emphasizing symmetry and balance.
