Lincoln Hotel sells for $400k

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The Hotel Lincoln – which, in its heyday hosted musical icons like Nat King Cole, James Brown, and Aretha Franklin – was bought by Solomon Carter, son of state Rep. Steve Carter, for $400,000 in a deal that closed Monday.

The piece of Baton Rouge history is located on Eddie Robinson Dr. almost on the corner of Government St.

Previous owner Brandon Dumas originally had the historic building listed at a half-million.

Carter plans to renovate the property, and would like for it somebody to be a boutique hotel.
