Velvet Revolution

Record #:
The Velvet Cloak Inn on Hillsborough Street in Raleigh has been condemned, but some residents are continuing to live there. Owner David Smoot is trying to sell the building to developers even though members of the Velvet Cloak Villas Condominium Association still claim ownership of a portion of the property. A legal battle is waging over control of the once luxurious hotel who had guests such as Marilyn Monroe, Ronald Reagan, and Bob Hope.
