The Attica Hotel The Attica Hotel, for all its local fame, has surprisingly little information readily available about it. We know that in May, 1886, when the Cyclone struck Attica, it was known as the Revere House. It was badly damaged at that time. By August, 1886, repairs had been made and a formal re-opening of the Revere House was celebrated with a grand ball at the opera house. Loeb’s orchestra furnished the music. An elegant supper was served at the Revere House with many from Lafayette and Danville, IL attending. The Revere House became Hotel Attica later, but we were unable to determine when this occurred. Although the hotel interior was remodeled by its various owners throughout the years, its exterior appears much the same. Once famous for its Prime Rib dinners, the Attica Hotel has been closed for a number of years. No historical look at hotels in the area would be complete without mention, however brief, of the Hotel Attica.
