I have an ash tray and a towel from the hotel. Is there a place to donate these for display?

I am researching info on my family, for an upcoming family reunion, and came across this hotel. Is it still in existance? I understand it was built by Robert H. Ricks who served in both branches of the NC State Legislature. You can email me at jcox@ricksglass.com
